Browner to headline law school conference
The 18th annual Public Interest Environmental Law Conference will feature keynote speaker Carol Browner (JD 79), the longest serving administrator
of the Environmental Protection Agency and a former key environmental
adviser to President Barack Obama.
The conference is scheduled Feb. 23-25 and is presented by the University of Florida Levin College of Law and co-sponsored by The Florida Bar Environmental and Land Use Law Section and student government and the UF Office of Sustainability. For more information go to www.law.ufl.edu/piec.
Browner was EPA administrator from 1993 through 2001. Most recently she was assistant to President Obama and director of the White House Office
of Energy and Climate Change Policy. In that position — known as the president’s environment czar — she coordinated federal climate change, energy and transportation policy. Browner left the administration in the spring and is currently senior counselor of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm in Washington, D.C.
