Professor Adell Amos Speaks to the Fourteenth Institute for Natural Resources Law Teachers
Adell Amos, assistant professor and director of Oregon Law’s Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center, recently spoke to participants at the 2009 Fourteenth Institute for Natural Resources Law Teachers on the topic of “Evaluating Western Water Law in the Context of Energy and Climate Policy.”
Professor Amos addressed the need to integrate water, energy, and climate policy by examining the specific limitations and advantages offered by the prior appropriation doctrine, specifically looking at common provisions in many western water codes. She also discussed the opportunities to use existing water law to connect energy efficiency, land-use decision-making, and climate policy.
The Fourteenth Institute for Natural Resources Law Teachers was held from May 27 to 29 in Chico Hot Springs, Montana. The conference is sponsored by the Rock Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, the Institute for Energy Law, The Center for American & International Law, and the American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy & Resources.
