Current Issues in SEQRA


Understand the steps that need to be followed to ensure that land use development projects can withstand judicial scrutiny.

This material will identify projects that are subject to SEQRA and will help evaluate the timeline for compliance with SEQRA to manage client and development team expectations. This topic will provide the basic framework of SEQRA litigation and help you understand the use of options for continued compliance with SEQRA, such as a generic environmental impact statement. This program will also help you understand the impact of the most recent regulatory amendments to SEQRA on the approval process.
