Nineteenth Annual Western Boot Camp on Environmental Law® April 3-5, 2023

Why Western Boot Camp? Join us for a stimulating three-day hybrid immersion in environmental law at Western Boot Camp. Designed for new and seasoned professionals, this intensive course explores the substance and practice of environmental law. Western Boot Camp 2023 will take place live in San Francisco, CA (and virtually via Zoom).

Both Western and Eastern Boot Camps provide an excellent overview of environmental law and cover similar material. However, they follow slightly different agendas and have a few other differences:

  • Both have top-rated faculty members, who tend to be from the respective region.
  • Eastern Boot Camp tends to have more participants and has more intensive networking opportunities.
  • Western Boot Camp tends to be smaller and has more personal attention from faculty members.
