It's hard to believe (and terrifying for my 1Ls), but today is April 1. So it's time--no fooling!--to introduce a new guest blogger. We're thrilled to have Hannah Wiseman join us for the month.
Professor Wiseman recently joined the faculty at the University of Tulsa College of Law, where she teaches and researches in the areas of property, land use, energy, environmental, state & local government, and administrative law. She studied at Dartmouth and Yale Law, and clerked for Judge Higginbotham on the Fifth Circuit before serving as a visiting assistant professor at the University of Texas School of Law.
Professor Wiseman has published a number of excellent articles, primarily in the areas of energy and environmental law and regulation and local government. She has several on the very hot topic of hydraulic fracturing, as well as my particular favorite: Public Communities, Private Rules, published last year in the Georgetown Law Journal. Check out all of her work at her SSRN page. We're very honored to have her join us here at the Land Use Prof Blog!
UPDATE: I didn't even realize it until Jessica pointed it out in the comments, but Hannah has also joined a group that just recently relaunched the Environmental Law Prof Blog on our Law Professor Blog Network. We know something about that task too, so congrats to Hannah, Lincoln Davies, Brigham Daniels, Blake Hudson, and Lesley McAllister for doing it and for your future contributions to the broader discussion of land use, property, and environmental law!
