Description

This program will provide attorneys and LSRPs with the latest information on the current environmental landscape and opportunities as they relate to site remediation. Attorneys and LSRPs will walk away from this course with better understandings of their roles under NJ's legal framework, which is so much more than the Site Remediation Reform Act.

Redesigned with relevant topics for practicing LSRPs and attorneys of any and all specialties, this interactive course is "TEAM" taught by NJ's top environmental attorneys, LSRPs and regulators so that all parties understand the perspectives, roles and responsibilities of the other project members. Site remediation case studies will be presented to demonstrate the different roles and viewpoints of all members of the TEAM. A client's perspective will also be included. Each featured topic listed below begins with a lightning-round overview of the important statutes, regulations and case law as it relates to the subject area so that all discussions have context. Following each overview, TEAMs will present their coordinated real-world view of the operation of the law in question from a permitting, enforcement and litigation point of view as it relates to LSRPs, attorneys, and their remediation projects.

Featured Topics

  • Spill Act
  • Industrial Site Recovery Act / UST Act
  • LSRP / SRRA
  • Site Remediation including Considerations of Land Use Planning
  • SRRA 2.0 - What's Ahead for SRP
  • Hot Topics - Legal Court & Licensing Board Decisions
