About the Michael H. Remy Scholarship

Michael RemyMichael H. Remy 1944-2003

In his nearly thirty years of private practice, Mr. Remy represented a wide variety of public and private clients as well as nonprofit organizations.

Mr. Remy asisted large corporations and small entrepreneurs alike in various permitting and environmental matters throughout the state. Many counties, cities, and special districts relied on Mr. Remy’s counsel in the processing, environmental review, and litigation of large and small projects. Some of his most notable environmental accomplishments were: heading the successful political and legal efforts to shut down the Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant; and representing the Sierra Club and William Hewlett against the conversion of Shirley Canyon to a commercial ski run by the Squaw Valley Ski Corporation. In 1990, the Environmental Council of Sacramento named Mr. Remy "Environmentalist of the Year."

Mr. Remy was widely admired and loved by his colleagues, friends and family, who regarded him as a man of extraordinary intelligence, personal integrity, kindness, and generosity. Mr. Remy’s warm presence is sorely missed by everyone at Remy Moose Manley, LLP, but even in his absence, his memory continues to provide guidance and inspiration.

This scholarship, sponsored by Remy Moose Manley, LLP in memory of former Environmental Law Section member and advisor, Michael H. Remy, includes Tuition, Travel, Room and reasonable Board for the 2017 Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite®.
