Conference to explore intersection of public health, environmental law

The School of Law’s 26th annual Red Clay Conference, “Healthy Planet, Healthy People: Conversations from Environmental Law and Public Health Perspectives,” will address the intersection of public health and environmental law. Starting at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 28, this daylong symposium will take place in the Larry Walker Room of Dean Rusk Hall.

Rena Steinzor, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Law, will deliver the keynote address at 2:30 p.m. Steinzor has written extensively about the efforts to reinvent environmental regulation in the U.S., the use and misuse of science in environmental policy and the devolution of legal and administrative authority to the states.

The conference is open free to members of the UGA community. It will offer five CLE credits for attorneys for $45. All other registrants will be charged $10.
