Program Description: Many attorneys may not recognize lurking environmental review/CEQA issues in time to competently address them. Such issues surface in many practice areas – including land use and real estate, construction law, agriculture law, water law, eminent domain, and property rights matters. Recognizing CEQA issues early can be critical when representing clients in administrative, transactional, and litigation matters. A basic awareness of CEQA’s unique processes can help avoid costly mistakes. This program offers a nuts-and-bolts introduction to CEQA for the non-specialist.
