  • Date: September 26, 2017
  • Time: 9:30am–4:30pm
  • Location: New York University School of Law | 40 Washington Square South – Vanderbilt Hall | New York, NY

State actions increasingly define the future of our nation’s energy system and determine our national response to climate change. A distinguished group of speakers, including attorneys general and high-level policymakers from across the country, will discuss how states are developing innovative climate and energy strategies and using both litigation and policy to create cleaner, more resilient energy systems.

CLE credit will be available.
