Celebrating the Environmental Law Institute’s 50th Anniversary with President Scott Fulton
This week, I sat down with Scott Fulton, President of the Environmental Law Institute, on the occasion of ELI’s 50th anniversary.
Scott is ELI’s 5th President. As a former ELI Board member myself and a practicing lawyer in the environmental space, I have known Scott for years given his many high profile roles as a former EPA General Counsel, Assistant Chief of the Environmental Enforcement Section at the U.S. Department of Justice, among other prominent positions.
In our conversation, Scott explains the various lines of work in which the ELI is currently engaged, how the Institute has evolved over its 50-year history, and how it maintains its status as a well respected, internationally recognized, non-partisan organization. We talk about the impact of the current federal Administration on the legal infrastructure, ELI’s judicial training efforts around the world, the concept of “soft law,” as well as about the role that new technologies will play in in the future of environmental monitoring and law.
It was great speaking with Scott about his work at ELI, and to celebrate an organization that has been an important part of the environmental law landscape for the past fifty years. So, here’s my discussion with Scott Fulton, President of the Environmental Law Institute.
