    Dirty Business Abroad: Corruption, Litigation, and Pollution in the Former Soviet Union?

    CLE: 1 General

    Discussion: Steve Bain will speak about practicing natural resources law in Kazakhstan and working as an environmental management consultant in the Czech Republic, covering the practical application of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and issues that lawyers dealing with foreigners should know about. He will also discuss some of the surprises of litigating in other countries and health hazards caused by authoritarian governments that make the United States look pristine.

    Speaker: Steve Bain practices environmental and natural resources law in Denver with Welborn Sullivan Meck & Tooley. He joined their office in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 1997 before returning to Colorado in 1999. Before that he worked for two years as an environmental management consultant for the Czech Ministry of Environment in the Black Triangle region of North Bohemia. He also taught International Petroleum Law at DU Law School from 2005-11 and is the managing editor and a contributing author of Environmental Regulation of Colorado Real Property published by the Colorado Bar Association.

    TREE PLANTING
    May 2, 2020
    8:00 am - 1:00 pm

    Join us for the 8th annual Tree Planting!
    Hosted by The Justice Center of the El Paso County Bar Association and CUSP, the event will be held on May 2nd, and service an area off of Rampart Range Road, above Cascade and Woodland Park.

    This outgrowth of an original tree planting project out of Manitou Springs has been ongoing since 1982 and credits 12,000+ seedlings in the area to the hard work of volunteers. 

    Come get your hands dirty (in a non-metaphorical way) alongside colleagues and other community volunteers. Tree planting to be followed by a barbecue lunch, provided by pitmasters Jack & Doris Donley and Judge Prince. 

    To register, please visit www.justicecentercos.org/tree-planting

    The seeds needed for this project are often quite pricey, and we rely on grants and generous donations every year to fund this project. If you would like to make a donation towards this year's event, please visit www.justicecentercos.org/donate
