Introducing Jessica Owley

Owley Here at the Land Use Prof Blog we've been incredibly fortunate to have some really bright scholars willing to contribute--from getting Jim Kelly and Tony Arnold join the lineup, to several interesting guest bloggers, including Ken Stahl, McKay Cunningham, and most recently, Antonia Layard.  It's a new month (already!) and I'm pleased to announce a new guest blogger: Jessica Owley of the University at Buffalo Law School.

Jessica teaches environmental law, property, and land conservation at Buffalo.  She holds both a JD and a PhD in environmental science, policy, and management from Berkeley.  Before joining the faculty at Buffalo, Jessica practiced in the land use & environmental law group at a major law firm and taught at Pace Law School.  Her research interests are in land conservation, property rights, and using property tools for conservation in the context of climate change.  She has posted several interesting articles in recent months on the subject of conservation easements, including forthcoming pieces in the Stanford Environmental Law Journal, an ABA book on Greening Local Government, and Law and Contemporary Problems

We're excited to have Jessica join us this month, and we look forward to her thoughts and observations!
