The University of Toledo College of Law’s annual Great Lakes Water Conference brings together leading academics, policy makers, and legal practitioners to explore current challenges facing the Great Lakes. Keynote speaker U.S. Representative Marcy Kaptur will kick off the conference. The first panel will explore legal solutions to the harmful algal blooms plaguing Lake Erie. I’m moderating the second panel on challenges arising from the network of petroleum pipelines in and near the Great Lakes. The final panel will cover the new Clean Water Rule, a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision impacting impaired waters, and the proposed Waukesha Great Lakes diversion. The conference is free to the public and no registration is required (except for attorneys seeking CLE credits). For more details, see the conference brochure.
