Symposium

The American University Business Law Review’s Fall 2017 Symposium: What’s Next in the Pipeline? A Discussion of the Legal, Economic, and Societal Implications of the Keystone XL Pipeline

On March 24th, 2017, the U.S. State Department issued a presidential permit to TransCanada to construct the Keystone XL Pipeline. Since then, many environmental, indigenous, and business groups have filed lawsuits challenging the State Department’s approval of this pipeline.

Please join the American University Business Law Review on Wednesday, November 8th for a spirited discussion on the pipeline. Our panel will feature the country’s brightest energy & environmental industry professionals from major law firms, environmental organizations, and think tanks. The panelists will analyze the legal, economic, and societal implications of the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Panel topics to be discussed will include the NEPA and Clean Water Act challenge claims, the use of eminent domain as a legal tool to build this pipeline and it effects on agricultural and economic growth in local communities, and the pipeline’s effect on our climate, indigenous communities, and public land.

Lunch will be provided.
