Larry W. Brown served as a Member of the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board from 2006 to 2011. After completing one term, in February 2011, he returned to private law practice specializing in nuclear safety and environmental remediation law. He is also an Adjunct Professor and teaches a course in Atomic Energy Law at the George Washington University Law School, Washington, DC. In 2001. Mr. Brown was appointed to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as the Senior Policy Advisor for nuclear, spent fuel and non-proliferation, and nuclear security issues. In this role he provided recommendations on a broad cross-section of key issues to the Office of Nuclear Energy, the Office of Environmental Management, the Office of Non-proliferation and International Security, the Under Secretary, and the Deputy Secretary of Energy. As a DOE Senior Policy Advisor he coordinated efforts to capture value from the government並_s uranium inventories, while encouraging private industry to modernize nuclear fuel cycle facilities in the United States. His efforts contributed to the resolution of private claims for prior transfers of 9,950 tons of contaminated natural uranium, decontamination of nearly 15,000 tons of technetium contaminated natural uranium, and recognition of the value of the government並_s large inventory of high assay depleted uranium. At the end of his term at DOE, the stagnant U.S. uranium enrichment industry, which previously had no concrete plans for deployment of new enrichment technology, had begun two privately funded technology development and deployment initiatives.
