The Red Clay Conference is an annual student run conference at the University of Georgia School of Law established to increase public awareness of environmental issues on a regional, national, and international level through a series of educational presentations and open forum discussions. It’s put on by the Environmental Law Association (ELA), an organization of Georgia Law students who seek to further the development and advancement of environmental law through awareness raising activities and events throughout the year. The Red Clay Conference is their biggest event of the year and it is sure to draw out both students, seasoned attorneys and curious members of the Athens community.
This year’s conference will focus on emerging issues in environmental law. Specifically, it consists of one keynote speaker and three panels, which will address the following topics: Management of Coal Ash in the Wake of Changes to EPA and EPD Rules Pertaining to Solid Waste Management, Transboundary Water Issues Stemming from the Florida v. Georgia Litigation, and the Future of the Clean Power Plan & Other Air Regulatory Issues.
To celebrate this great event, the Law Library will have a display of environmental law books and periodicals for those wanting to learn more about this exciting branch of law.
