This year’s CLEBC Environmental Law Conference is set to be held on November 8 at the Pan Pacific Hotel. The course is primarily recommended for environmental lawyers, but real estate lawyers should also find the conference valuable.
Developments in provincial environmental regulation continue to have an impact commercial undertakings. This year’s conference will focus on these developments and related areas of law with an emphasis on managing the risks and opportunities associated with contaminated sites.
Solicitors and litigators will benefit from this conference as discussion will tie together issues relating to liability, corporate/commercial matters, and real estate. Where appropriate, the program will also touch on best practices and professional ethics.
Topics covered in this year’s conference include:
- substantive environmental law,
- issues relating to contaminated property,
- certificates of compliance,
- environmental laws and their enforcement,
- contractual responses to managing risk from contaminated property.
This course has six hours of BC CPD credits available, and the course chairs are Richard E. Bereti of Harper Grey LLP and R. Max D. Collett of Bull Housser. For more information, visit the CLEBC website.
