18th Annual Environmental, Land Use & Energy Law 2017

MCLE Conference Center, 10 Winter Place, Boston


Hemenway & Barnes partner Diane Tillotson will be a faculty member of the 18th Annual Environmental, Land Use & Energy Law 2017 conference.

Join your colleagues at this premier event to learn what happened in the legislature, state agencies, and courts, and what’s new at the municipal level. Find out what you need to know for your clients and your career, and catch up on what you missed during this busy year. The Conference is designed for attorneys who have been coming, or practicing in the field, for years, as well as for those new to this practice area. The panelists survey the critical new developments in each of the major fields of environmental law, energy law, land use, and related litigation.

Keep track of court decisions, current regulations, and pending bills—and spot new ideas for your federal, state, or local practice. Among the topics covered this year are surveys of important court decisions, the results of DEP’s regulatory reform initiative, hazardous waste and water resource updates, and zoning trends. And hear new presentations on key energy law items of practical note to attorneys, as well as a roundup of various government agency initiatives and enforcement affecting environmental and land use clients.

Diane Tillotson will speak on current issues for development, including the status of zoning reform, recent legislation related to starter homes, Chapter 91 height waivers, 40R districts, Dover Amendment, and transit-oriented development.
