Professor Frank Speaks on Supreme Court Case at Georgetown Law

Professor of Environmental Practice Richard Frank spoke at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., on January 9 as part of a program analyzing the oral arguments in Sackett v. USEPA, widely regarded as the most significant environmental case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court this term.  The program, held on the same day the Sackett case was argued before the Supreme Court, was co-sponsored by King Hall's California Environmental Law & Policy Center.  In his presentation, Frank discussed the background of the case, critiqued the advocates' written and oral arguments, and discussed the broader implications of the anticipated ruling in Sackett.

Frank, a 1974 graduate of King Hall, is a leading scholar and practitioner in the field of environmental law and the founding Director of the new California Environmental Law and Policy Center at UC Davis School of Law.
