Greenlight on: Note from a former student to Prof. Blumm

May 17, 2016

Prof. Blumm recently received the kind of note that reminds you why you became a professor to begin with. One of his former students, Sarah Kamman (LLM ’04), is now Vice President & General Counsel for Pacific Power. She was actively involved in negotiations regarding the future of the four mainstem Klamath river dams, which resulted in the signing of the amended Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement on April 6, 2016. She recently wrote Prof. Blumm to share the news and to tell him the impact he had on her work:

“Many moons ago, I was a LL.M. student taking your Pacific Salmon seminar (I was there for the 1998-1999 school year and also took your Public Lands seminar).  I thought you might enjoy the fact that one of your former students played a large role in negotiating an amended agreement that includes a path forward for removal of the four mainstem Klamath dams… It has been an honor to be a part of this, and I thought you might like to know that what I learned from you mattered in a very concrete way.”

We are proud of the important work done by our alums in all spheres of environmental, natural resources, and energy law. Thanks to Sarah Kamman for remembering the influence of Prof. Blumm.
