Staying Informed on Conservation Law

Are you an experienced land trust professional, attorney, law school faculty, appraiser or accountant looking to stay informed on conservation law? Are you interested in crafting practical legal solutions?

If you work with land trusts on advanced legal issues, this is a program you cannot afford to miss. This symposium will deliver information that is impossible to find at any other single program. You will receive updates from leading practitioners and conservation professionals who are uniquely qualified to weigh in on timely topics in conservation law. You will leave with practical tips you can put to use immediately upon your return to the office.

Join us for two intensive days where we will:

  • Explore the developing law on the donation valuation of land and easements and ethical duties of land trusts;
  • Examine specific challenges with multiple landowners of conservation easement property;
  • Unravel specific examples of nonprofit law risk assessment and management;
  • Explore strategies for confronting proposed interstate pipelines, including demonstration of public need, consideration of alternative transport systems and deference to conservation values; and
  • Dig into the nuances and implications of three recent critical conservation cases.
