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. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
