Washington Lawyers for Sustainability

Sustainability’s Core: What Must Lawyers Do?

Last chance for online pre-registration on our new website:

The conference will be of interest for lawyers and non-lawyers interested in a sustainable society and the role that lawyers could or should play in creating it. It will consider:

· Whether lawyers have particular abilities and responsibilities for setting society and its institutions on a more sustainable course; and

· Whether present practices of lawyers are addressing the need for sustainability in the economy, in society, and in our relations with the natural world.

Distinguished guest speakers include

§ Gifford Pinchot, President, Bainbridge Graduate Institute, and long-time advisor and writer on business issues

§ Ross Macfarlane, former head of the environmental law practice at K&L Gates and now Senior Advisor, Business Partnerships at Climate Solutions

§ Tim Parsey, principal of Shift Alliance, a B Corporation

§ Trudy Scherting, President of Moka Joe, a B Corporation

§ Laura Musikanski, JD, MBA, Executive Director, Sustainable Seattle

The conference will end with a panel and roundtable discussion of B Corporations and other issues raised by the conference.
