Environmental Law Presentation and Activity with Lisa Mitchell

environmental lawEarlier this month our Law class and Environmental Club at KES were privileged to participate in an invigorating and challenging presentation, activity and debate on a case study that closely mirrors some ongoing environmental concerns in our geographic area. Lisa Mitchell, who is the Executive Director of East Coast Environmental Law, did a masterful job of planning the event for the 27 student participants. Many legal issues have many dimensions and points of view, which prevents an easy solution. Part of the activity had students taking on the roles of farmers, environmental groups, businesses, Indigenous peoples and government to discuss and debate a solution for the given case study.
 
As a teacher you know a lesson is a success when the dialogue continues beyond the class, and this is exactly what happened in this case! I would like to thank Lisa Mitchell and her fine group of (no less than) six other university students of law for organizing this event and executing it flawlessly. It was a fine way to cap a great year for our Law class!
