The Steering Committee welcomes up to 40 select environmental lawyers, personally selected from leading Canadian firms, to candidly share cross country developments in environment law reforms, natural resources and climate change. This ‘2nd Generation’ Forum is geared towards practitioners with 8-19 years of experience in this field.
Using candid, seminar-style discussions at this annual meeting, the group examines trends and developments in every jurisdiction for meaningful dialogue on the most pressing issues facing their clients today.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
