Environmental expert joins IU

Carolyn Waldron has joined Indiana University Maurer School of Law as director of its Environmental Law Program.

Waldron is former vice president of the National Wildlife Federation, where she led the organization’s collaboration with national and local partners to secure passage of the historic Everglades Restoration Act – the world’s largest ecological restoration project – to conserve the world-class wetland ecosystem in Florida. She helped establish the Hoosier Environmental Council, one of Indiana’s first professionally run environmental advocacy groups, in the 1980s. She has an MPA in environmental policy and policy analysis from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs and also earned her undergraduate degree in environmental studies and fine arts from IU.

Her position is supported by a grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. “We are delighted to partner with the IU Maurer School of Law’s Environmental Law Program as part of the Trust’s commitment to Indiana’s conservation heritage and environmental stewardship. This grant complements several of the Trust’s previous and current grants, especially our three-year commitment to the national Land Trust Alliance to increase the organizational capacities of Indiana’s land trusts,” said Harriet Ivey, president and CEO of the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.

  1. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  2. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  3. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  4. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?

  5. Once again Indiana has not only shown what little respect it has for animals, but how little respect it has for the welfare of the citizens of the state. Dumping manure in a pond will most certainly pollute the environment and ground water. Who thought of this spiffy plan? No doubt the livestock industry. So all the citizens of Indiana have to suffer pollution for the gain of a few livestock producers who are only concerned about their own profits at the expense of everyone else who lives in this State. Shame on the Environmental Rules Board!
