3:00 p.m. PT — 5:00 p.m. PT Webinar--information provided upon registration
In collaboration with the University of Oregon’s Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, CLDC’s Lauren Regan and other environmental lawyers who have firsthand experience with the SLAPP threat — both in the U.S. and abroad — will discuss how extractive industries and their corporate lawyers are manipulating U.S. courts to target climate activists, immobilize public interest attorneys, and avoid accountability.
Lauren will also talk about how environmental lawyers can support those targeted by SLAPPs as cooperating attorneys, and about how to armor yourself against a frivolous SLAPP attack.
