I'm Jamie Baker Roskie and I'm one of the new co-editors of the Blog. As Matt Festa has already mentioned, I'm the managing attorney of the Land Use Clinic at the University of Georgia. The Clinic started in 2002, and its mission is to provide innovative legal tools and strategies to help conserve land, protect water quality, and promote the creation of communities that are responsive to human and environmental needs. Our clients are primarily local governments, community groups, and land trusts. We also work with state agencies, regional planning bodies, local government associations and affordable housing advocates.
I'll be posting about the Clinic's projects and other topics of interest. I also work with a great interdisciplinary team here at UGA, including faculty in Environmental Design, Geography, and Public Service. I hope to have some of my colleagues as guest bloggers in the future.
In the meantime, if you're interested in learning more about the Clinic, visit our website.
