About the event
The New York Times called Robert Bilott, “The lawyer who became DuPont’s worst nightmare.”
Bilott, a distinguished environmental attorney, shares the unsettling story of his epic legal battle against DuPont and how he exposed corporate coverup and massive chemical contamination of unprecedented scale and scope, now impacting virtually every living thing on this planet. Drawing from his book, Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-Year Battle Against DuPont, Bilott takes audiences through the unforgettable legal drama about malice, manipulation, and perseverance against the failings of environmental regulation.
In place of the annual Litigation Symposium, the Litigation Section combined forces with the Environmental Law Section to offer this unique program.
