Course Description

After recent years in which records have been set for both rain and lack of precipitation, Environmental and Water Law expert Wes Miliband discusses issues which arise when both drought and climate change create conditions over which populations have little control. To help attorneys proactively recognize and address these issues so as to prevent both legal disputes and damage to people and property in the future, Mr. Miliband raises awareness of how, and where, such disputes may arise. He addresses the basic system of water rights, tribal, military and Federal rights, key cases, how local, state and federal water agencies work and long term creative solutions for an uncertain future, such as ocean winds, desalination and other sustainable techniques.
