This National Association of Environmental Professionals two-part webinar will provide a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Case Law and Legislative/PolicyUpdate for those of you who were not able to attend the sessions at the National Conference in Durham, NC in March.

May 17, 2017– NEPA CASE LAW UPDATE
The May 17th webinar, presented by P.E. Hudson of the Department of the Navy, Office of General Counsel, and Dr. Michael D. Smith of ENERCON, will provide an overview of the paper authored by Lucinda Low Swartz and Ms. Hudson. Ms. Hudson and Dr. Smith will discuss the key National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) federal appellate court decisions issued in 2016, as well as some detail on the cumulative impact challenges. In 2016, the U.S. Courts of Appeal issued 27 cases, the 27 cases involved seven different departments and agencies. Overall, the federal agencies prevailed in 21 of the cases, did not prevail in three cases, and did not prevail, in part, in three cases, with a total prevailing rate of 83 percent.  Opinions will be analyzed for their implications and relevance to NEPA practitioners, with an emphasis on key lessons to be learned for improving NEPA practice.
