Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s second nominee to the United States Supreme Court, was a student during the second renaissance of environmental lawmaking in the United States, was a clerk for Justice Kennedy, a relative defender of environmental issues while a justice of the Supreme Court, and Judge Kavanaugh has spoken out about climate change as a political and scientific issue. At the same time, Judge Kavanaugh has been skeptical of regulatory efforts that draw their authority from vague statutory provisions, and such provisions are frequent in the country’s major environmental laws. This CLE will explore the intersection between Judge Kavanaugh’s background and opinions on environmental matters in an effort to discern how his appointment to the Supreme Court will impact federal environmental regulation.

Lunch will be provided.
