New Course!! Identifying and Solving Environmental Problems for Municipalities

View Calendar

Course Description:

This half-day course is designed to provide the municipal, legal and technical attendees with an understanding of environmental law and how it applies to municipalities. It will first cover the most cited, and most often misunderstood, state and federal environmental laws: the New Jersey Spill Compensation & Control Act and CERCLA.  Each segment of this section of the course will address the joint and several, and strict, liability provided for under each law; immunities that may be available to municipalities to such liabilities; causes of action for contribution against responsible parties; and damages – what they may comprise and how to prove them, and when and by whom they must be incurred before a contribution action can be sustained against other parties that may be responsible for the contamination.
