Eric Freyfogle

Honor
Environmental Law
Professor Eric Freyfogle has had a recent law-review article of his chosen as one of the top ten of the year in the combined fields of land use, environmental, and property law, by a nation-wide panel of law professors.  He's no newcomer to this honor.  It is his eighth article to receive this recognition.  Over the past quarter century, no law professor in the country has had more pieces selected.  His article, "Leopold's Last Talk," explores the mature conservation thought of the late Aldo Leopold, recognized by many as the nation's most important writer on conservation.  The article appeared as a solicited contribution to the Washington Journal of Law & Environmental Policy.
