WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Factory farming and acid rain will be among the environmental problems to be examined in a lecture series presented by Pace Law School’s Environmental Law Society, April 11-13, on the School’s campus in White Plains, N.Y. The roster of prominent speakers includes: Professor Robert Kennedy Jr., who co-directs the School’s Environmental Litigation Clinic; and John Cahill of the New York State Commission for Environmental Conservation. The series is free and open to public. For more information, call Erika Dedrich at (914) 422-4136.
The lecture series celebrates the 30th anniversary of Earth Day, a seminal event in the environmental movement. Some 20 million people across the country participated in the first Earth Day held in 1970. Its success is often credited with the establishment of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage by Congress of such landmark legislation as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.
