Former Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke was everywhere. From welcoming people at the Moot Court podium to the conference book, the Dean of the Howard Univesity School of Law was all over this conference. He worked to assure that everyone was happy and satisfied with their 2007 EJ Conference experience.

Dean Schmoke was the moderator for the plenary session that featured two of the most powerful leaders in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area: Jack Johnson and Ike Leggett, County Executives for Prince George's and Montgomery Counties, respectively. The session entitled "Intersection Between Environmental Justice and Local Land Use Planning & Zoning" was held in the large 400 seat Moot Court. They all addressed questions from the audience.
