Save Ourselves v. Louisiana Environmental Enforcement Commission

Uptown Campus
Weinmann Hall
MPR Courtyard

The Institute on Water Resources Law & Policy would like to invite you to join us in a discussion about the Public Trust Doctrine in Louisiana. Panelists Judge James L. Dennis, Tulane Law Professor Emeritus Oliver Houck, and Tulane Law Professor and Director of the Environmental Law Clinic Lisa Jordan will talk about their experiences with the seminal public trust doctrine case, Save Ourselves v. Louisiana Environmental Enforcement Commission. The public trust doctrine requires that the government protect and conserve certain lands held in trust for use by the public. Where did this doctrine come from? How did it develop? Where is it headed? These are just some of the many questions we’ll explore during this talk. A Q&A session will follow to give audience members a chance to ask questions. 

A reception will follow.
