Deepwater Horizon, BP Texas City, Exxon Valdez, Ixtoc I: the infamous names alone highlight the inevitable duet between energy production and catastrophic risk. When disaster strikes at an energy facility, environmental laws often play the commanding role in response, clean-up and — sometimes — the penalization and punishment of responsible parties. This panel will explore how environmental and safety laws and regulations apply in the after-math of disaster, and whether those laws (including potentially expansive environmentally criminal liability) should be revisited or revised.
The University of Houston Law Center is located off of Interstate 45, just south of downtown Houston.
To reach the Law Center from I-45 northbound, take the Elgin-Cullen/Lockwood exit, turn left at the light, and proceed under the freeway to the traffic light at Entrance 18 where you will take a left. Take a left at the first inner-campus road and follow it as it turns right and deposits you at a four-way stop. Turn left, and the Law Center buildings will be on your left, with metered parking available to your right in Parking Lot 19B.
To reach the Law Center from I-45 southbound, take the Spur 5 exit and follow it to the first stop light (University Drive). Turn right, and proceed past the Campus Wellness Center to the stop light (Calhoun). Turn right, and proceed past Calhoun Lofts to the last entrance on your left before Calhoun “dead ends.” Parking Lot 19B is on your right, with the Law Center complex flanking the bronze statue of Albertus Magnus. Metered parking is available.
