|Environment, Natural Resources and Energy Law Section|
The Environment, Natural Resources, and Energy Law Section consists of attorneys practicing in the widespread substantive areas affected by federal and state environmental laws. Examples include practitioners involved in environmental regulation and litigation, including the impacts on environmental permitting, land use, business transactions, water rights, regulation of natural resources, mining, and oil and gas development.
The Section seeks to provide information, contacts and resources to assist attorneys throughout Virginia in these and related practice areas.
The Section also monitors environment-related initiatives each year from the Virginia General Assembly, provides useful and timely summaries of the new bills passed, and seeks, where appropriate, to initiate proposals or to provide input to proposed legislation.
Cooperation with Other Sections and Continuing Legal Education
The broad impact of environmental law has implications for many practice areas. Consequently, the Section seeks to cooperate with other sections of the VBA that share common interests in conducting continuing legal education programs (CLEs) and providing information resources. The Section seeks representation and input from attorneys practicing in all areas of Virginia.
