Supreme Court Wrap-Up: Energy and Environmental Issues in the 2014-2015 Term


Event Details


Program Description: Each year the United States Supreme Court makes many decisions that broadly influence our society and our way of life. Similarly, broad impacts often affect the business community, particularly when the Court’s decisions involve energy and the environment. The cases of this 2014-2015 term raised particularly important issues regarding the intersection of economic and regulatory policy, including Michigan v. EPA, which considered the extent to which regulators must balance the costs and benefits in environmental rule making.

At this event, leading legal and economic scholars, as well as experienced advocates, reviewed cases heard or ruled upon by the Supreme Court in the 2014-2015 term that have significant impacts or implications for energy and environmental concerns.
