      The Law and Policy of Products Regulation The life cycle of chemical products, especially those embedded in consumer products, has gained increasing attention with growing awareness of potential problems with the human health and environmental implications of chemical exposures throughout the product lifecycle, including after the discard of a product at the end of its useful life. The presentation looked at the regulation of chemicals that are used in industrial and consumer products, and the new governance and stewardship initiatives being considered globally by a wide variety of stakeholders to diminish the potential for adverse effects from chemicals.

        Clean Water This seminar focused on the Clean Water Act, the events that led to its enactment, and legal disputes that have influenced its enforcement. The speakers discussed the regulatory and permitting framework for limiting water pollution and the important distinction between point sources and nonpoint sources. Although "water" is a straightforward concept, two recent Supreme Court decisions have created enormous confusion surrounding the question of what types of water bodies are subject to federal regulation. The seminar also discussed the distinctions between the regulation of water quality versus water quantity, and the considerations that policymakers face in light of growing demands for clean water in the context of energy needs and climate change. Faculty: Alexandra Dunn, Executive Director & General Counsel, Association of State & Interstate Water Pollution Control Administrators (ASIWPCA) Erin Flannery, Federal government water attorney http://www.eli.org/Seminars/past_event.cfm?eventid=618

          Clean Land: Hazardous Waste and Sites Panelists described federal law governing the management of hazardous wastes and the clean-up of hazardous waste sites with emphasis on the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). The speakers discussed about Love Canal and the events that led to the enactment of CERCLA, and how the allocation between various parties of responsibility for cleanup changed throughout the history of the statute. The discussion also addressed uncertainties that still exist in RCRA in areas such as the definition of solid waste and the rules for recycling. Faculty: Anna R.

            Taking on one of the most pressing environmental policy issues of the day, ELI was pleased to introduce its first seminar discussion in a debate format. Loosely following an academic debate structure, two expert teams argued the resolution, asked questions of the other side, and identified points of agreement and disagreement. Following the debate, the discussion was opened to audience questions. We hope this format will helped to crystallize issues and separate fact from rhetoric.

Segal, Director, Policy Resolution Group, Bracewell & Giuliani LLP Jeffrey R. Holmstead, Director, Environmental Strategies Group, Bracewell & Giuliani LLP

                Land Use and the Law Land use planning touches everyone. This session focused on the primary elements of land use planning law: 1) zoning, 2) comprehensive planning, and 3) eminent domain. The speakers described the history of Euclidean or "suburban" zoning and urban planning, and more recent trends in approaches to planning communities. They also discussed smart growth, transportation issues, and green building initiatives, and described inter-agency cooperation that led to holistic approaches to planning land, building, water, and infrastructure needs to reduce energy costs and climate change impacts.

                      Welcome to The Kabbalah of You, a journey of discovery, in which we will ask—and answer—the most fundamental question of all: Who is the mysterious being at the heart of what it is to be … you? We all know the feelings of sadness and misery and are never content to rest in them; we seek a good that we experience as good. We are guided towards the experience of good by the questions we ask in our search. What do we seek? If we seek what we want, our search will yield pleasure, physical delight—powerful, but short-lived, and can lead to self-destructive behavior. If we seek rather what we need, we will find happiness. We will then be satisfied with very little—but we can stagnate and become complacent in that satisfaction. But if we seek what we are, then we will find energizing joy.
