This is a subject of deep interest to our law school. We have established one of the top environmental studies centers in the United States. In addition, we operate a nationally recognized energy law project, land use law center and international commercial law institute. Our interest is global and broad, focusing on the legal issues involved both in resource use and conservation and on applications at the local, national and international level. We take this broad approach for a simple reason: it is the approach that our graduates will have to take as they practice law in the global market and environment. For these reasons, I am pleased that Professor Nolon is continuing to discuss with FARN how our collaboration can continue and become even more productive.
