CEQA at 50: Assessing the History & Charting the Future of the California Environmental Quality Act

Friday April 16, 2021

9:00 AM – 5:00 PM


The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is California's most overarching, longstanding and controversial environmental law.  

Now just over fifty years old, CEQA has evolved considerably over the past half century. "CEQA at 50" brings together an impressive array of CEQA experts from the worlds of public policy, state and local government, the planning and development community, private law practice and academia.   

They will discuss and analyze CEQA's history to date; current CEQA controversies; perceived shortcomings and potential reforms of the statute; and how CEQA is likely to develop in future decades.


This conference will feature two keynote addresses-

The morning Keynote address will be from California Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye

The afternoon Keynote address will be given by Wade Crowfoot, California Secretary for Natural Resources 



MCLE Credits will be available for attendees.
