Last Wednesday, ELS, along with Harvard Environmental Law Review and the Food Law Society,hosted Professor John Echeverria, Professor of Law at Vermont Law School & renowned takings expert, and Chelsea Lane-Miller, a research fellow at Vermont Law School, for a lunch time talk on property rights in water. Professor Echeverria and Ms. Lane-Miller presented on the ongoing judicial debate over property rights in water, and in particular whether the California public trust doctrine limits private rights in water and what standard should govern claims of alleged takings of private water rights based on regulatory restrictions protecting endangered fish. They also provided the history of the long-running political battle in California over the nature and scope of public rights in water. We had over 60 students, professors, and practitioners in attendance!
