Description: This Continuing Legal Education program is intended to help further your understanding of Tribal regulatory control over water resources. Tribes can and do have regulatory authority over many of the water resources located in Arizona. For many this is a way to improve water quality and improve health for their communities. For others, this is an issue they prefer to leave to the federal government. Meanwhile, for the regulated community, understanding when tribes can and do exercise jurisdiction and appreciating how to work with a tribal regulator can save time, expense, and frustrations. This CLE will feature an esteemed panel of regulators and former regulators.
COST: no cost to attend this program.
This Program may qualify for 2 hours of CLE credit.
Please RSVP to Teri Yeates, State Bar of Arizona by 12:00 Noon February 26, 2009 at (602) 340-7312 or via e-mail at Teri.Yeates@staff.azbar.org.
