The event will take place between 4-8 PM on Monday, October 17 in the University of Baltimore School of Law's Moot Court Room at 1401 N. Charles St. Baltimore, MD 21201.

Since the Chesapeake BaySavers' inception, the non-profit has played a key role in helping to pass several pieces of legislation that protect the Bay's oyster population, including the Sustainable Oyster Population and Fishery Act of 2016, which ensures that the Bay's oyster population will be sustainably managed.

I'm proud to be a part of an event that promotes such an important discussion and inspires the next generation of leaders in environmental law."
