How Green is Your State Bar?

On February 1, 2012, Jennifer Berg, Northgate’s Sustainable Practice Leader, spoke on a panel entitled “Green with Envy? Your Bar Should Be!” at the National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) Midyear Conference in New Orleans. Jennifer presented the results of her survey of all 50 State Bars regarding their current sustainability initiatives, which she conducted at the request of the American Bar Association. In addition, Jennifer provided the audience with guidance on how to initiate and implement “green” initiatives, an overview of different certifications, and how to overcome challenges. The panel challenged the audience to actively support discussions among its members about law, sustainability, and the rights of future generations.
