Monica P. Schroeck, Counsel in the firm’s Environmental Department, will address issues related to Environmental Justice (EJ) at the seminar “An Introduction to Environmental Law in a New Climate.” The full day program will be presented by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education in cooperation with the NJSBA Environmental Law Section on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 from 9:00am – 4:30pm at the New Jersey Law Center.
As the environment and our relationship to it changes, so must our legal, regulatory and policy apparatus. This program will examine the foundations of environmental law and its application in a changing landscape, where the realities of climate change, the scarcity of land resources, the unmet need for environmental justice, and many other forces are challenging people, businesses, and governments to think bigger and behave differently.
This presentation assembles a panel of policymakers, attorneys, and environmental professionals for a crash course in environmental law and a thoughtful conversation about its future. Topics to be addressed include:
- Site Remediation
- Water Pollution
- Air Pollution
- CAFRA and Waterfront Development
- Environmental Justice
- Climate Change and Renewable Energy
- Stormwater Management
- Endangered Species
Ms. Schroeck concentrates her practice in environmental law, advising both public and private entities on issues associated with real estate and corporate transactions and in environmental litigation. She has extensive experience encompassing a broad range of environmental and land use issues, including those associated with site remediation, environmental due diligence, solid waste disposal, clean air and water regulations, insurance coverage, and environmental health and safety (EHS) compliance.
