Wetlands serve important environmental functions. Wetlands also are often attractive areas for development. This tension between environmental protection and development frequently plays out in the courts, especially the Supreme Court.
Professor Sheldon L Trubatch, Esq., applies his experience to introduce basic wetlands concepts and describe the ongoing legal battles over wetlands.
I. Gain familiarity with wetlands, their functions, and how those functions affect legal issues involving their preservation and use
II. Recognize the broad scope of federal and state wetlands regulation and protection
III. Grasp legal wetlands issues, especially as addressed by the Supreme Court
I really liked the subject, because I live at a shoreline community, but he is a hard listen.
Could listen to his programs all week
Very interesting topic. Super knowledgeable speaker.
very good course on wetlands, and understandable overview. Thank you!
He always does a nice job.
Again a decent course, that met my need.
PHENOMENAL! As with other of Sheldon Trubatch courses, the materials were first class - deeply substantive and to-the point. Mr. Trubatch knows his stuff. This ranks among the best programs I've taken on Lawline.
good presentation and content
Mr. Trubatch is a superstar lecturer!
Great review of the issues in this area.
Good information and well presented.
Good overview of the topic. Appreciated the citations and descriptions of the numerous statutes/programs governing wetlands.
Great program with very helpful written materials - thank you
Excellent survey of wetlands jurisdiction.
Highly recommend! excellent up to date content; may have not covered Sackett, but everything else, A+
Excellent. Very informative for someone with an avocational interest in wetlands as a birder, but with no prior legal expertise in this area. Please invite him to do a longer, more detailed presentation on this topic.
Good and informative course.
The course shed light on an area filled with controversy. Hopefully federal rules, affirmed by the courts, will provide more guidance in this area.
Excellent substantive presentation.
The speaker was very knowledgeable about this area of law and prepared very interesting materials/case law. As with many short CLE's, this topic could certainly be expanded into a much longer course to go into greater depth on the topic. Excellent program
Good introduction to the topic
