Calming Troubled Waters: Local Solutions
Please join the Environmental Law Society and the Land Use Law Center for a discussion of the troubles with regulating water quality under the federal system of law and ideas for building a coherent framework involving all levels of government. This is rapidly developing area of law of direct relevance to environmental, real estate, and land use law, as well as the future of public health. Professor John Nolon's student research team will be presenting their research findings at the workshop “Calming Troubled Waters: Local Solutions”. The research team’s work explores the fragmented nature of water law in the U.S. and strategies for connecting the fragmented powers of federal, state, and local governments to protect water quality.  The team comprises ten Pace Law JD students and three joint degree students with Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, two of whom are JD candidates at Vermont Law School.  The students research is in preparation for the 15th Annual Norman Williams Distinguished Lecture in Land Use Planning and the Law at Vermont Law School to be held on April 4 and given by Professor Nolon.
