Why Brownfields? 

The Journal of Natural Resources and Environmental Law and the Eastern 
Mineral Law Foundation recognize the important role that "brownfields" 
laws play in addressing the problem of abandoned and under-used 
industrial sites. These sites often sit abandoned or under-used for 
years as state and federal officials pursue the parties actually 
responsible for the contamination. 

The tremendous costs which can arise under the strict liability scheme of 
CERCLA lead industrial developers to shun these otherwise usable lands 
while seeking out unused "greenfields" for new factories and other uses. 
Such wastefulness has lead to urban decay, the disappearance of 
greenspace from urban areas, and unnecessary urban sprawl. 

The 1998 JNREL Symposium on Brownfields will provide a forum for leading 
legal scholars and practitioners to discuss and debate existing 
brownfields laws and policies, with the goal of developing ways to address 
the diverse needs of the numerous parties involved in the complex process of
brownfields redevelopment.
