About ChE&L

ChE&L is a forum for the combined community of engineers and lawyers with an interest in issues involving both principles of chemical engineering and law and policy. ChE&L promotes interchange of ideas, concepts, know-how, and experiences among engineers, scientists, and lawyers interested in the technical, legal and policy aspects of chemical engineering and related fields, including patents or intellectual property, environmental issues and climate change, energy, litigation, risk management, product liability, worker safety, emergency response and licensing. Given the broad scope of related issues, this Forum would serve a variety of professional disciplines, including: chemical, environmental and civil engineers; scientists; consultants; and lawyers.
