Animal Migration Seminar and Publication

The CLC attorneys and Clinic interns will be participating in the second semester of a year-long series of interdisciplinary seminars on protecting animal migrations, an effort initiated by the environmental program of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Featured guests in 2009 were Holly Doremus, professor of law at the University of California at Berkeley; David Wilcove, professor at Princeton and expert on conservation; Paul Cryan, bat expert with the USGS in Colorado; and Peter Marra, bird migration expert at the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. Prior to the start of the seminar series, Jeff co-authored a paper with Professor Robert Fischman titled "The Legal Challenge of Protecting Animal Migrations as Phenomena of Abundance" which is currently in press.
