The LEC launched the Initiative for Energy and the Environment in July 2013. The Initiative offers a variety of activities, taking full advantage of the LEC’s established programs for judges, attorneys general and their senior staff, congressional staff, professors, and the broader public policy community.
To lead this new Initiative, the LEC recruited Richard O. Faulk , a prominent trial, appellate and environmental lawyer from Houston, Texas. Mr. Faulk formerly served as Chair of the Litigation Department, Environmental Practice Leader, and head of the Climate Change Task Force for Texas-based Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP. Richard is now a resident of Arlington, Virginia and a partner at Hollingsworth LLP in Washington, DC.
The Initiative’s inaugural event, Supreme Court Preview: Energy and Environmental Issues in the 2013-2014 Term, took place at the National Press Club on Wednesday, September 18, 2013. Since then, the Initiative has hosted a variety of events that tackle these important policy issues. To register for future programs, please see our upcoming events page.
