Lawyers on the nano case
It is probably inevitable that lawyers will also make money out of nanotechnology at some stage. Indeed, they may have done so already, if only in the creation of businesses building on the technology. So it is no surprise that the American Bar Association (ABA), through its Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER), has been picking over the USA's statutes in search of their implications for nanotechnology.

SEER has now made its deliberations public. You can retrieve their take at the ABA's web site.

The lawyers seem to have put quite some effort into the exercise, with seven working parties thinking long and hard on the issues and talking at some length with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

We were particularly taken by their suggestion that "We believe that the issues surrounding nanotechnology provide an interesting and unique opportunity for EPA to imagine and implement a 21st century approach to environmental management."
