On September 26, Professor Heidi Gorovitz Robertson participated in Vermont Law School’s Annual Environmental Scholarship Colloquium. The annual event, usually conducted in-person in S. Royalton, Vermont, was held on-line. Below is an image from the colloquium (Professor Robertson in the center).
Robertson presented her work-in-progress, Local Governments, Home Rule and the Rights of Nature: Lessons from Afar on Protecting Close to Home. In addition, she commented on the works-in-progress of her co-panelists — Alice Kaswan (San Fransciso), Creating Home: Multilevel Governance Structures for Emerging Climate Migration, and Jonathan Rosenbloom (Vermont), Land Use Justice: Concrete Steps to Alleviate Embedded Racial Bias in Land Use Codes.
Robertson is the Steven W. Percy Distinguished Professor of Law at C|M|LAW, and Professor of Environmental Studies at the Levin College of Urban Affairs, Cleveland State University.
