Frederick R. Anderson, a lawyer with the Washington, D.C., office of McKenna, Long, and Aldridge LLP, will be honored with the 2010 American Bar Association Award for Excellence in Environmental, Energy, and Resources Stewardship from the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources. 

Anderson will receive the award at 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 1, during a special presentation at the section’s 18th Section Fall Meeting at the Sheraton New Orleans. 

The ABA Award for Excellence in Environmental, Energy, and Resources Stewardship was established in 2002 to recognize the accomplishments of a person, organization or group that has distinguished itself in environmental, energy and resources stewardship.  Anderson was selected for this honor based on his sustained leadership and innovation in the development of the field of environmental law and policy for more than 40 years. 

For nearly 20 years, Anderson has been in private practice litigating complex multi-party disputes between companies, governments, financial institutions, non-governmental organizations and indigenous groups. He worked on high-profile projects such as Alaskan offshore oil drilling and wind energy projects of Cape Cod. Internationally, Anderson has counseled clients in Central and South America, Africa and the Pacific regions on issues as diverse as greenhouse gas emissions management, hazardous waste disposal and forest projects. 

Anderson was the first full-time president of the Environmental Law Institute, a primary source for the then-growing field of environmental law. He continued to drive the development of environmental law as a distinct practice area as a professor at the University of Utah College of Law, and later, as the dean of American University’s Washington College of Law. While in academia, Anderson co-authored the popular casebook Environmental Protection: Law and Policy, now in its fourth edition. 

A member of the ABA, Anderson is also an executive committee member for the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Science, Technology and Law.  He chairs the boards of  both the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development and the Center for International Environmental Law. 

Anderson graduated summa cum laude from the University of North Carolina, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree.  He also received a Bachelor of Arts from Oxford University, and a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School. 

The ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources is the premier forum for strategies and information for environmental, energy and resource lawyers. Representing more than 11,000 members with a wide range of professional interests, the section keeps its members abreast of development trends, current court decisions, legislative initiatives and statutes concerning environmental, natural resources and energy law.
 
With nearly 400,000 members, the American Bar Association is the largest voluntary professional membership organization in the world.  As the national voice of the legal profession, the ABA works to improve the administration of justice, promotes programs that assist lawyers and judges in their work, accredits law schools, provides continuing legal education, and works to build public understanding around the world of the importance of the rule of law.
