Regional AdaptLA Webinar: Legal Issues & Opportunities for Sea Level Rise Planning in California: A Primer for Non-Lawyers

To implement sea level rise adaptation plans effectively, local actors in California must understand the ways law and legal tools could enhance their adaptive capacity.

Learn from law and policy experts Sean B. Hecht and Megan M. Herzog of UCLA School of Law’s Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment about:

- The role of law in the adaptation planning process

- Public and private rights on the coast, including discussion of takings law and the public trust doctrine

- The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and sea level rise

- Legal tools and recommendations for effective sea level rise planning, including UCLA’s ongoing project to develop model implementing legal provisions for California local governments engaged in sea-level rise adaptation

An invitation will be sent out to register for this webinar in late August. If you are not on our mailing list and wish to register for future webinars, please contact Juliette Finzi Hart.
