GreenFlash: Updates from the Environmental Law Program
Joel Reschly – an “almost alum” - recently learned that he won the Beveridge & Diamond Constitutional Environmental Law Writing Competition organized by the Environmental Law Institute and the National Association of Environmental Law Studies. Joel is the first Lewis & Clark law student to win this prestigious award which recognizes student work that best advances the state of scholarship and informs the debate on a current topic of constitutional environmental law. The award comes with a $2000 cash prize and an offer to publish in the Environmental Law Reporter.
Lewis & Clark’s Environmental Law program has once again been recognized as the best in the country. US News and World Report recently released its annual rankings of top specialty law programs, and Lewis & Clark is rated #1. In environmental law courses, students learn about energy law and policy, conservation of natural resources, sustainable development, global warming and more. Our passionate faculty, students, alums and staff are the heart of our program.
Lewis & Clark’s Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law program is offering two online courses this summer: Wetlands taught by Prof. Craig Johnston, and Renewable Energy Law and Policy taught by Prof. Melissa Powers.

Number one. That’s the spot Lewis & Clark earned in The Princeton Review’s ranking of the 353 most environmentally responsible colleges and universities.
The Developments in the Public Trust symposium on April 10th brought together academics, practitioners and students to discuss the history and future of the doctrine. In addition to presentations by professors from around the country, there was time for discussion and exchange of ideas on how the public trust doctrine applies to the pressing environmental issues of today. A link to the recording of the presentations is available online, as well as the powerpoints and academic papers which will be published in Lewis & Clark’s Environmental Law journal. Thanks to everyone who participated for making this a great event.
