In this OpenHour we had a panelist dialogue about law and environmental monitoring! This is Public Lab’s second panel discussion on this topic. In this recording you will hear about national environmental law case studies, learn how to determine if legal advocacy is a route for your community to take regarding environmental justice concerns, and hear questions shared by the audience. Are you interested in environmental law as a professional career? If so, we also encourage you to view this recording.
We were joined by the following guest speakers:
– Kristen Schlemmer, Legal Director at Bayou City Waterkeeper, Houston, TX.
– David Page, Attorney/Member of Environmental Energy & Natural Resources Advocates (EENR Advocates), Tulsa, OK
– Amy Johnson, Private Attorney based in Oregon with history in environmental justice.
– Chris Nidel, Private Attorney at Nidel & Nace Law, P.L.L.C., Washington, DC.

Public Lab is a community, supported by a 501(c)3 non-profit, that develops and applies open-source tools to environmental exploration and investigation. By democratizing inexpensive and accessible do-it-yourself techniques, Public Lab creates a collaborative network of practitioners who actively re-imagine the human relationship with the environment.
The core Public Lab program is focused on community science, in which we research open-source hardware and software tools and methods to generate knowledge and share data about community environmental health. Our goal is to increase the ability of underserved communities to identify, redress, remediate, and create awareness and accountability around environmental concerns. Public Lab achieves this by providing online and offline training, education and support, and by focusing on locally-relevant outcomes that emphasize human capacity and understanding.
