Where: Washington, District of Columbia, Arnold & Porter Conference Center

Archer Faculty: Marc Rollo, Esq. (March 14, 10:30am, “New Jersey — The Once and Future Leader for NRD Programs?”)

Overview: This year’s Advanced NRD Conference in D.C. starts with a special opening policy address from Jeffrey B. Clark, Assistant Attorney General for ENRD, on federal policy priorities. We’ll follow that with a discussion by federal trustees on how they see the current challenges and opportunities.States are asserting themselves on a number of environmental issues and we’ll feature New Jersey as an NRD pioneer that is moving forward to address new issues.

New issues include baseline in the context of extreme weather and climate change. We’ll also explore innovative approaches for valuing nature and sustainability. Along those lines we’ll have a case study of a consent decree with the City of Seattle for restoration banking.

You’ll hear insights from in-house counsel for NRD case management strategies and our annual up-date on trial strategies and techniques. We’ll conclude with John Cruden’s insights into how NRD practice adapts to new issues and science.

This program attracts both high level speakers and attendees and we keep participation at a level that facilitates a very active dialogue. You’ll have an opportunity to continue the conversation at the breaks and we hope you’ll stay for the reception and dinner at the end of the first day. Join us for this truly extraordinary event.
