Welcome to the Western Lands, Western Waters blog, presented by the Natural Resource Use and Management Clinic at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law. This blog focuses on major topics in natural resource law and policy that affect people in the west, with an emphasis on Arizona issues.
The Natural Resource Use and Management Clinic gives law students the opportunity to gain practical experience in the law, policy, and science governing western natural resources. In particular, the Clinic focuses on multi-stakeholder, collaborative solutions to natural resource challenges. These challenges pertain to water rights and quality, endangered species, public lands, climate change, and tribal lands and resources. In support of this mission, the Clinic works with the Natural Resource Users Law & Policy Center, as well as Cooperative Extension, both housed at the University of Arizona.
