Perhaps more than in any other state, courts and litigation play a major role in shaping California’s environmental law and policy. Judicial decisions are enormously influential as California legislators, regulators, non-profit organizations and the regulated community deal with such controversial issues as climate change, green chemistry, the California Environmental Quality Act, water policy, the Delta, Lake Tahoe and California’s coastal resources. This talk by will focus on some of the recent judicial highlights affecting California environmental law and policy, as well as chart important present and future trends.


Richard Frank is Professor of Environmental Practice and Di-rector of the UC Davis School of Law’s California Environmental Law & Policy Center. From 2006-2010, he served as Executive Director of the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment and as a Lecturer in Residence at the UC Berkeley School of Law. From 1977-2006, he served in various legal capacities with the California Department of Justice, culminating as Chief Deputy Attorney General for Legal Affairs (2003-06). During most of his career with the Department, Frank focused on land use and public land management issues. Mr. Frank received his law degree from the University of California at Davis in 1974.
