Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

In his essay titled “Conservative Principles for Environmental Reform,” Professor Jonathan Adler provides a critique of the environmental regulatory architecture and traditional approaches to environmental policy put in place in the 1970’s, such as command-and-control.  He notes thatconservatives have failed to engage in the substance of environmental policy and have failed to come up with alternatives to the conventional environmental paradigm and its emphasis on regulatory intervention and the centralization of regulatory authority in the federal government.  Prof. Adler will discuss these and other issues, including an alternative conservative approach to environmental policies.  He is joined by Prof. Donald Kochan who will provide his comments and answer questions from callers.


  • Prof. Jonathan H. Adler, Case Western Reserve University School of Law
  • Prof. Donald J. Kochan, Chapman University School of Law


Call begins at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
