Lesley K. McAllister Symposium on Climate and Energy Law
Each year the University of San Diego School of Law hosts the Leslie K. McAllister Symposium on Climate and Energy Law. Legal and policy experts from across the country attend the event, including practicing attorneys, policy makers, and academic experts.
The symposium is co-hosted by the Energy Policy Initiatives Center and the San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law.
The theme of the 2019 symposium is “The Future of Energy in a Changing Climate.” Recent wildfires in California have highlighted the challenge of operating an electric utility in a changing climate. Lawmakers, regulators, and industry stakeholders are considering whether changes are needed to adapt to the impacts of climate change, including wildfire, sea level rise, and heat waves.
At the University of San Diego’s Eleventh Annual Lesley K. McAllister Symposium on Climate and Energy Law, academic and policy experts will analyze and assess several aspects of this complex issue.
