Environmental and public policy facilitation training applies traditional facilitation techniques to environmental law and policy.

They will learn to balance competing interests and incorporate expert input to structure an agenda and process that satisfy all stakeholders. Participants will engage real conflicts with exercises to practice the skills taught. Attorneys may also earn up to 19 units of California MCLE credit.
