VLS to Launch Inaugural Top 10 Environmental Watch List
November 22, 2010
SOUTH ROYALTON, VT -- Vermont Law School will release its inaugural Top 10 Environmental Watch List on Jan. 3, 2011, to spotlight the most critical environmental law and policy issues of 2010 and how they may play out in 2011.
Produced by the nation's top-ranked environmental law school, the Watch List will evaluate judicial, regulatory, legislative and other actions from 2010, a major year for environmental news. More than a compilation of the year's top stories, the Watch List will be a predictive, analytical look forward intended to help the media in reporting further on the causes, consequences and solutions to environmental challenges that significantly affect human beings and the natural world.
The Watch List, which will be published online, was selected by VLS Environmental Law Center faculty with assistance from student staffers at the school's Vermont Journal of Environmental Law, who together researched more than 75 issues before deciding on the Top 10. In a series of concise briefs, the Watch List will provide scholarly insight and common-sense analysis intended to promote public understanding of the critical environmental issues of our time.
