Section Reporter Purpose
: To provide ELULS members with timely articles on developments in the areas of environmental and land use law. Typically, the Reporter includes feature articles written by ELULS members on newly emerging topics, federal and state case law updates, reports on activities by governmental agencies with jurisdiction over environmental and land use matters, and ELULS activities. The Reporter also publishes legislative forecasts and summaries of legislative action on topics of interest to ELULS members. Recently, the Reporter added a column on ethical concerns for environmental and land use attorneys and professionals.
