Message From The Chair

Welcome to the Nuclear Law Committee Website! The Nuclear Law Committee focuses on legal issues related to nuclear power, nuclear materials, nuclear medicine, state regulation of nuclear materials, and federal, state, and tribal relations. We strive to provide opportunities for professional discourse and information exchange within the bar of attorneys, scientists, and academics interested or involved in the nuclear field.

We are in the midst of another busy year for our committee. Committee activities include:

  • Committee Newsletter: Issued 2-3 times per year, the newsletter provides insightful analysis on recent issues and trends in the nuclear sphere.

    • Contact Aaron Flyer for details and publishing opportunities.

  • Programming: We try to coordinate 2-3 programs per year, including panel presentations on nuclear regulatory basics and current topics of interest to the nuclear bar. We are always looking for opportunities to co-host programs that may be of interest to our members with other organizations and ABA committees. Many of our programs are free of charge.

  • Membership: Contact Matt Ring if you are interested in joining our committee. For current members, we would love for you to become involved in committee leadership and we are open to any suggestions you may have for new or additional committee activities. Contact Jane Accomando or Jonathan Rund if you are interested in playing a more active role in our committee.

  • The Year in Review: Our committee annually prepares a chapter for the SEER Year in Review with a summary of nuclear law updates for the prior year. Contact Stephen Burdick if you are interested in participating in this effort.

Please check back here and on our LinkedIn page for updates on our committee’s work and topics of interest to the nuclear bar. We look forward to another successful year.

Jane Accomando and Jonathan Rund


About the Committee

The Nuclear Law Committee focuses on the legal issues related to nuclear power and nuclear materials. Nuclear power is more than just the licensing and operation of power plants—the nuclear fuel cycle also involves fuel production, storage and disposal. Nuclear materials are used to diagnose and treat many types of illness and injury; in industrial and construction applications; and in academia and scientific research.
