Livestock Grazing on Public Lands: Law, Policy and Rebellion: 2017 Idaho Law Review Symposium

I am delighted to be the faculty advisor for the 2017 Idaho Law Review Symposium, "Livestock Grazing on Public Lands:  Law, Policy and Rebellion," which will be held in Boise, Idaho on March 31, 2017.  We have a star-studded array of public lands experts coming for the event, and plan to stream it live.  More on that soon.  In the meantime, if you are in the Boise area, here is the registration link.  We also are doing some amazing partnering events associated with the symposium with BLM Idaho, which I will post more about in the coming days.
