Lauren Godshall and Devin Lowell are Clinical Assistant Professors of Law at Tulane’s Environmental Law Clinic. The clinic has been involved in hundreds of cases and proceedings for nearly 200+ community organizations, ranging from local environmentalists, neighborhood civic and housing organizations, to municipal water providers.

For their presentation, they will be discussing recent developments in environmental justice. Specifically, in 2022, environmental justice advocates in Louisiana notched a huge win when Judge Trudy White vacated the air pollution permits for the proposed Formosa Plastics complex in St. James Parish, in part because of LDEQ’s failure to adequately consider environmental justice. Attorneys from the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic, which represented one of the plaintiffs in the Formosa case, will discuss this historic victory and the future of environmental justice law in Louisiana.
