Anyone who has worked on an environmental campaign knows the value of knowing the law and how to apply it too boost your case. The Angeles Chapter Sierra Club Legal Committee and Loyola Law School Environmental Law Society on March 22 will hold an extraordinary day of teaching laymen the tools they need to be effective in their environmental battles.

The Environmental Legal Workshop is free and open to all, but reservations are required (see below).

Topics this year will focus on Land Use, Global Warming, Fracking & Oil, and Tree law as well as a segment that explains the ins and outs of the California Environmental Quality Act, such as how to read a CEQA report, how to comment, and other key information.

The workshop will be held 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 22 at Loyola Law School. Complimentary lunch will be provided. Parking on campus is available for $3. Please RSVP to sclelsworkshop@gmail.com.

The Angeles Chapter's Legal Committee is a vital force in ongoing land and environmental battles in L.A. and Orange counties. The committee last year won a key California Supreme Court decision that said geographic information systems (GIS) data must be provided to the public for a nominal fee under the Public Records Act. The case stemmed from a refusal by Orange County to share its GIS parcel database with the Sierra Club.
