  • Alexandra Klass

Lewis & Clark’s Environmental Law program welcomed Professor Alexandra B. Klass, of the University of Minnesota Law School, as its 32nd annual Distinguished Environmental Law Visitor this month. Her lecture, titled “U.S. Energy Transitions in the Trump Administration: A Law and Policy Perspective”, was delivered (via webinar) to a wide audience of environmental law alums, practitioners, faculty, and students. This event is one of several events the program has hosted throughout 2020 in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

Associate Dean Janice Weis remarked that the virtual format “allowed us to welcome alums from all over the country to participate in the event.”

Professor Klass teaches and writes in the areas of energy law, environmental law, natural resources law, tort law, and property law. Her recent scholarly work, published in many of the nation’s leading law journals, addresses regulatory challenges to integrating more renewable energy into the nation’s electric grid, transportation electrification, oil and gas transportation infrastructure, and the use of eminent domain for electric transmission lines and pipelines. She is a Distinguished McKnight University Professor and in prior years was the Julius E. Davis Professor of Law and the Solly Robins Distinguished Research Fellow.
