Property, Real Estate Law & Environmental Law

What do you find interesting about environmental law?

"The complexity is what I find fascinating about environmental law. It involves the intersection of so many varied legal, political, and economic issues. My greatest wish is for climate change to be depoliticized. In the 1970s, environmental politics were not so partisan and divisive, and politicians worked cooperatively to pass the Clean Air Act and other key pieces of environmental legislation. Of course, at the time, this was easier because the problems were visible: you could see the smog and our rivers wre dirty and on fire. Today, our problems are just as severe - more so, really - but they are harder both to conceptualize and respond to. If we could get beyond politics, we could really talk about these complex issues and come up with more sophisticated solutions."
