Argent & Schuster, Inc.
Argent Communications Group is a multi-channel information provider covering environmental, water, land use, and climate change legal and policy issues through monthly, practice-oriented legal journals; a website with searchable, archived articles for subscribers; email alerts; and Minimum Continuing Legal Education conferences. With a contributing and advisory editorial base of over 50 in-the-trenches practicing attorneys and law professors, we provide not only information but also insight into these complex areas of law and policy. Our Contributing Editors assemble the most useful updates, reporting from the experience of their own practices—insight that only those who practice daily in these areas can truly provide.
Argent Communications began in 1989, founded by Gala Argent, and soon after, joined by Robert Schuster. The goal was to produce unbiased, easy-to-digest monthly updates for California water law and land use law attorneys, regulators and consultants that didn’t merely report on the latest law and policy but provided insight and the implications of the law and policy. More than 26 years later, Argent Communications has grown to six reporters covering water, land use, environmental and climate change law and policy—in California, the West and throughout the nation. We now augment our monthly Reporters with our website and email alerts, and through annual MCLE conferences that supercharge the practitioner with cutting edge information, expert presentations and intense and lively debate.
At the end of the day, though, Argent Communications Group has remained uniquely small, boutique, and tight-knit. We like it that way, because it allows us to provide a personalized touch and quality of experience you simply won’t find anywhere else in legal publishing. All these years later, our mission remains steadfast: to provide unbiased, current, and relevant updates in the law and policy of natural resources, development and climate change, in a style that easily and quickly brings practitioners up to speed.
