Join us on March 15th for the American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources’ upcoming webinar “Scientific Experts in Environmental Litigation,” which will educate listeners on the latest technologies litigators can use to support environmental cases. First Environment’s Mete Talimcioglu joins Peter Condron and Louis Abrams to discuss how forensic engineering tools such as contaminant fate and transport, ground water flow, and degradation modeling can be used to determine the nature, extent, sources, and timing of environmental contamination. This will be an information-packed presentation with great visual examples – we can’t wait to share it with you and answer any questions you have!

Program Overview

Chemical fingerprinting, groundwater modeling and other scientific methods are available to help you advance your client’s position. But before incurring the expense of retaining a scientific expert to collect and analyze data, it is paramount that you have a firm understanding of the scientific methods such experts will rely upon to opine, among other things, how and when a discharge occurred and the extent of the impact. Join our esteemed faculty as they identify and explain the various scientific methods available to help you further your cause, factors to consider in deciding whether to retain a scientific expert, and whether such experts have survived Daubert challenges. Speakers will also respond to questions from the audience. This program is hosted by ABA’s Environmental Litigation and Toxic Torts Committee.
