March 4: Pace Student Workshop: Calming Troubled Waters: Local Solutions

In preparation for his presentation of the   15th Annual Norman Williams Distinguished Lecture in Land Use Planning and the Law at Vermont Law School, Professor John  Nolon’s student research team members will present their findings at a Workshop at Pace Law School on March 4th.  This is part of a multi-year project  of the Land Use Law Center entitled Calming Troubled Waters: Local Solutions.  The Workshop will commence at 4 pm in the Problem Room on the School’s White Plains campus. If you would like to attend, please respond to amccoy@law.pace.edu.  The research team’s work explores  the fragmented nature of water law in the U.S. and strategies for connecting the fragmented powers of federal, state, and local governments to protect water quality.  The team comprises ten Pace JD students and three joint degree students with Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, two of whom are JD candidates at Vermont Law School.

Real Estate Review seeking short articles for Spring, 2019 edition

As some of you know, I am the editor-in-chief of Real Estate Review, a quarterly Thomson Reuters publication aimed at legal professionals and the real estate industry more generally.  I am seeking several additional 2,000 - 5,000 word articles for our upcoming edition.  I would need the submissions by mid-March.  The articles do not need to be copiously footnoted.  Excerpts of larger articles--where permitted by previous publisher--are also welcome.  While articles tend to focus on legal issues, the broader areas of real estate practice are also encouraged!  Case studies are also welcome.

E-mail me if you have interest at millers@uidaho.edu.
