Welcome to new membership year! The Nuclear Law committee focuses on issues related to nuclear power, nuclear materials, nuclear medicine, state regulation of nuclear materials, and federal, state, and tribal relations.
This year, we will focus on two related themes: Nuclear Waste and Decommissioning. Our newsletter and programs will be tied to these two themes, and two of our law-student vice chairs will focus exclusively on these two issues. Our third law-student vice chair will be the assistant editor of our newsletter.
The Committee's vice chairs represent much of the spectrum of diverse backgrounds seen in attorneys working in this field. The vice chairs include private practitioners, federal and state employees, in-house counsel, and law students. In addition to the three law-student vice chairs, we’ve also added a vice chair for public interest to ensure that the Committee’s work considers the contributions of NGOs and other public interest groups to nuclear law.
The Committee intends to be an active participant in the Section's work, especially through newsletter publication, program sponsorship, and regular updates to this website and our LinkedIn group. Please feel free to contact me to learn about more ways that you can be involved with the Committee or with any recommendations.
