EarthXLaw

EARTHx, the largest event of its kind in the world, with over 100,000 attendees last year, “creates a fun and engaging atmosphere for thought and experiential learning while encouraging attendees to be the change they wish to see in the world.”  For environmental professionals and others affected by and interested in sustainability and environmental law, EARTHx’s Law and Policy Symposium provides a unique opportunity to both listen to and participate in a series of discussions of environmental thought leaders, representing diverse perspectives, on legal issues relevant to charting a course for a future that is both protective and productive.  This year’s Symposium is truly exceptional.
