Fred Krupp, '78Fred Krupp, '78, president of the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), will present the keynote address at the University of Michigan Law School's Environmental Law and Policy Program (ELPP) conference on Thursday, April 16. He will speak at 4 p.m. in South Hall Room 1225.

Krupp joined EDF as executive director in 1984. Under his leadership, EDF has become one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations, with more than one million members.

"In the nearly four decades since his graduation from Michigan Law—and three decades at the helm of the Environmental Defense Fund—Fred Krupp has been a leader in developing the kind of bi-partisan solutions to environmental problems that hold the key to a sustainable future at a time of partisan gridlock and inaction on our most pressing challenges," said David Uhlmann, the Jeffrey F. Liss Professor from Practice and director of ELPP. "We are thrilled that Fred is returning to the Law School to present the keynote address for the spring 2015 environmental conference."

The April 16-17 conference, entitled Competing Visions for a Sustainable Future, features experts on climate change, energy policy, urban development, conservation and human rights, grassroots sustainability efforts, and corporate environmental leadership. A complete conference schedule is available on the ELPP website.

Michigan Law's Environmental Law and Policy Program promotes scholarship, teaching, and interdisciplinary programs to address the myriad challenges facing our global environment, and it offers one of the most extensive environmental and natural resources law curriculums among top law schools in the United States.
