What Makes an Environmental Case a Criminal Case?

Please join ACS and the Yale Environmental Law Association (YELA) for a lunch talk with Jeremy Korzenik, a Senior Trial Attorney in the Justice Department's Environmental Crimes Section. Jeremy will talk about cases he has prosecuted with DOJ, as well as general issues that arise when prosecuting environmental crimes. ECS prosecutes individuals and corporations that have violated laws designed to protect the environment. It works closely with criminal investigators from EPA, FBI, and the Fish and Wildlife Service, and deals with violations under such statutes as the Clean Air Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Superfund, and the Lacey Act.
