Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law’s sixth annual spring environmental symposium on March 1 includes keynote speaker Cameron Davis, a longtime advocate for Great Lakes conservation.

Davis is senior adviser to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrator and Great Lakes Restoration Initiative counsel. He’s also the top official advising the EPA on the Great Lakes.

The symposium, which is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., is broken down into five panels of scholars and experts. Panel one examines Great Lakes challenges and emerging legal frameworks; panel two explores the problem of invasive species and the Asian Carp; panel three investigates the emerging threat of shale formation hydraulic fracturing; panel four looks at community connections and human rights; and panel five offers lessons learned from international and comparative models.

Online registration for attorneys who want CLE credit is $100; general admission is $25; and there is no charge for online registration of I.U. McKinney students, faculty and staff. The symposium is in the Wynne Courtroom and Atrium in Inlow Hall, 530 W. New York St., Indianapolis.

  1. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
