What's Hot in Environmental Enforcement


Our hosts were joined by Susan Bodine of Earth & Water Law, long recognized as a bipartisan problem solver, to discuss trends in civil and criminal environmental enforcement. Susan brought to the conversation insights from her over 30 years of environmental law experience. This experience included Susan’s time as Assistant Administrator for the EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance, as Chief Counsel to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, and as Assistant Administrator for EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management.
