On April 21, 2022 at 3 p.m. ET, the National Sea Grant Law Center will present a Continuing Legal Education webinar entitled “Per-and Polyfluorinated Substances Legal and Regulatory Update.” Per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) are an emerging contaminant with known human health effects. Federal and state policymakers have taken several major actions in recent months to address PFAS contamination, and lawsuits continue to be filed and make their way through the court system. In this webinar, National Sea Grant Law Center attorneys Catherine Janasie and Olivia Deans will provide an overview of current PFAS regulatory approaches by the federal and state governments, highlight some of the ongoing policy gaps and areas of concern, and discuss some lawsuits to keep an eye on.
This course has been approved by the Mississippi Commission on Continuing Legal Education for Approval for a maximum of 1 hour of CLE credit.
