Save The Date and Call for Presentations

May 5, 2011 at Pace Law School in White Plains, New York

Practically Grounded – Best Practices for Skill Building in Teaching Land Use, Environmental, and Sustainable Development Law

This conference – co-sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Law Teaching and the Government Law Center of Albany Law School and the Land Use Law Center of Pace Law School – offers professors an opportunity to showcase and learn about context-based learning strategies in these dynamic practice areas.  Due to the community-based nature of proposed land use projects and environmental disputes and the fast-paced development of litigation and policy formulation at all levels of government, opportunities abound to take students into public and private practice arenas and to bring practitioners and policy makers into the classroom.

You are invited to submit a proposal for making a presentation on skill building in law school courses on these subjects at this day-long conference.  Authors of selected proposals will present at this event and be given an opportunity to submit papers and essays that will be published by the Pace Environmental Law Review online.  Presentation and paper proposals should contain no more than 150 words and should be submitted by Tuesday, January 18th to:

Professor John R. Nolon, Counsel
Land Use Law Center
Pace Law School
78 North Broadway
White Plains, NY  10603

For more information, contact Professor John Nolon at Pace Law School (914) 422-4090 or Professor Patricia Salkin at Albany Law School (

I'm sure this will be a fantastic conference - I encourage you to submit a proposal and attend!
