Event Details

  • Venue: National Press Club

Program Description: Every 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.

At this event, leading legal and economic scholars, as well as experienced advocates, previewed cases accepted for review by the Supreme Court that have significant impacts or implications for energy and environmental concerns. The speakers also addressed cases that are rising for potential Supreme Court review from the nation’s lower courts and will highlight the importance of those cases and the necessity for Supreme Court review.
