Feller lectures on land and water rights

November 26, 2008

Professor Joe Feller, of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, participated in the 11th Annual Conference on Litigating Regulatory Takings Claims on Nov. 7, held at Stanford Law School and co-hosted by Stanford's Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program and the Georgetown Environmental Law & Policy Institute at Georgetown University Law Center.

Feller's lecture, "The Wayne Hage Takings Litigation: Public Grazing Land & Private Water Rights," focused on the late Nevada rancher who battled the federal government for decades over public lands and private property rights.

A week later, on Nov. 14, Feller addressed a meeting of the Appellate Judges Education Institute in Scottsdale. The title of his talk: "Whisky is for Drinkin', Water is for Fightin': Current Fights over Western Water."

Feller, a Faculty Fellow in the College's Center for the Study of Law, Science, & Technology, is on leave for the 2008-09 academic year, serving as senior counsel to the National Wildlife Federation in its Rocky Mountain Natural Resource Center in Boulder, Colo.
