Nuclear Law

Message From The Chair

Welcome to the 2014-2015 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. 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.

As I start my year as Chair, I wish to express my sincere gratitude to former chair Tison Campbell. Under his leadership, membership involvement in the Committee has grown and we were able to put on interesting and timely Committee programs that were widely attended and well-received. Membership grew so much in the past year that the Committee was awarded the “Best 2013-2014 Special Award on Membership Growth” at the 2014 ABA SEER Annual Conference held in Miami, Florida in October! We hope to build upon these accomplishments in the coming year.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s ahead for the Nuclear Law Committee during the 2014-2015 membership year:

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

· Programming: Committee Conference Calls/Webinars; CLE and non-CLE opportunities.

· Opportunities to present, publish, network, and collaborate with others in the nuclear field.

· 44th Annual SEER Spring Conference in San Francisco, California (March 26-28, 2015)

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 and with your ideas to expand our offerings.

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.
