Press Release

More than a dozen of the school’s top students in the field came to learn about Congressman Blumenauer’s work to strengthen environmental protections and to discuss Oregon’s role as a leader in land use and environmental laws.  The broad conversation ranged from questions on what more could be done to alleviate urban air quality problems, to a discussion on how to better frame the environmental law discussion in the public sphere and provide a legal framework for the uniform integration of household-sized clean energy devices in urban areas.  Students were thrilled to meet Congressman Blumenauer and learn more about the legislative side of environmental regulation, and came away with a new and practical perspective on their own day to day legal studies.
