Join us for this timely panel discussion on coastal land use conflicts caused by the changing climate, rising sea levels and how these conflicts play out in litigation. This dynamic presentation will include a discussion about long-standing common law principles, the Public Trust Doctrine, and the California Coastal Act, including its implementation by the California Coastal Commission and the California Coastal Conservancy, as well as how state and local regulation to protect state claims could instigate takings claims under the 5th Amendment. A highly-skilled and experienced panel of educators and attorneys will discuss the coastal development permit process and how these coastal erosion conflicts play out in litigation before the Coastal Commission.
