Symposium on Climate Regulation under the Clean Air Act


Join the Harvard Environmental Law Review for a panel discussion on climate regulation under the Clean Air Act in the wake of the Supreme Court’s June 2014 decision in Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA (UARG). UARG was a critical case in efforts to combat climate change, with the Court largely upholding EPA’s authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from certain new and modified sources of air pollutants. The panel will focus on the UARG opinion and its implications for future climate regulation, including EPA’s Clean Power Plan. Panelists are leading environmental law scholars Jody Freeman (Harvard Law School), Richard Lazarus (Harvard Law School), William Buzbee (Georgetown Law Center), Megan Herzog (UCLA School of Law), Thomas McGarity (University of Texas School of Law) and Craig Oren (Rutgers School of Law).


The panel will take place on Friday, February 27 from 3:30pm-5pm in Austin Hall West on the Harvard Law School campus, with a reception to follow. Email hlselr@mail.law.harvard.edu with any questions about the event.
