Webinar #2: Lesley K. McAllister Symposium on Climate and Energy Law
November 13, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 amFree – $25
Cleantech San Diego is a supporting organization of the University of San Diego’s Symposium on Climate and Energy Law.
This year the University of San Diego School of Law will host its Twelfth Annual Lesley K. McAllister Symposium on Climate and Energy Law. The Symposium will be virtual and will be split between two webinars (Nov. 6 and Nov. 13) on topics related to the overall theme.
Recent wildfires, heat waves, and power outages in California have highlighted the challenges of a changing climate. And, COVID-19 has reminded us how vulnerable some modern institutions can be when confronted with a crisis: from public health to economic systems and governing structures to global supply chains. At this year’s Symposium webinar series, regulators, utility executives, scholars, and other experts will discuss lessons learned from the pandemic and how these might be applied to climate equity and regulating in times of emergency.
