The LexisNexis Environmental Law & Climate Change Communityrecently selected the American College of Environmental Lawyers (ACOEL) blog - found here - to its Top 50 Blogs for 2011. Davis Wright Tremaine partner Rick Glick serves as ACOEL's website chair and was instrumental in setting up the blog and coordinating content.

The criteria for making the list includes effectively providing a wealth of information for all segments of the environmental law and climate change industry. These sites also demonstrate the power of the blogosphere, by providing a collective example of how bloggers can - and do - impact and influence the law and business in the environmental and climate change arena.

The ACOEL blog is an authoritative, educational blog written by members of the invitation-only professional association of lawyers who are recognized by their peers as preeminent in the field of environmental law. In addition to posts about air, energy, water, hazardous materials and environmental justice, the blog also provides news updates and information about conferences and events.
