Lead Policy & the Law

November 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

Lead Policy & the Law:

It’s more than Newark,
It’s more than water.

Wednesday, November 6 
9 am – 1 pm
Seton Hall Law School

Long before the recent headlines about lead contamination in Newark’s drinking water, advocates have focused on the problem of lead poison-ing from paint and the impact of poor housing conditions, particularly on children across the state.

This half-day symposium will address the current legal landscape for lead, lead hazard control enforcement, and tenant protections. We will consider the legal tools available and draw on experience from other states to determine best practices to improve the lives of all residents and end lead poisoning.
