Wolf Law (Wittemeyer Courtroom)


2019 Martz Winter Symposium

Thursday, February 28th and Friday, March 1st
Wolf Law Building, Wittemyer Courtroom

As the Trump administration enters the second half of the President’s term in office, the time is ripe for an exploration of the past, present, and future of public lands law. The administration’s management of public lands has become a flashpoint for many of the controversies of our day. These efforts intersect with numerous policies and an array of legal issues – from the constitutional authority of the President – to regulatory design. Friday’s Symposium (7 CLEs) will convene scholars, former political appointees, and practitioners across a range of specialties to address these issues in a manner that has broad practical import for policymakers, litigators, the outdoor recreation industry, and those who enjoy our public lands. In her keynote address, former Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell will speak about the current state of public lands management.

We will open the Symposium Thursday evening with a discussion with Dan Gibbs, the new Director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, who with discuss “The State of State Public Lands.” Thursday’s event is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception.

The Getches-Wilkinson Center is hosting the 2019 Symposium in collaboration with the Colorado Law Review and the Colorado Natural Resources, Energy & Environmental Law Review. It is our hope that this dialogue and the forthcoming law review articles will generate solutions that can be implemented by practitioners on the ground and will inform future lawyers entering the field.
