Editors: Nancy A. McLaughlin, Rober W. Swenson Professor of Law, University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, and James L. Olmsted, Owner/CEO/Attorney, OlmstedLAW, Adjunct Faculty, University of Oregon School of Law

Sponsor: The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law www.law.utah.edu, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, is dedicated to training leaders to confront the issues of our time and home to the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment www.law.utah.edu/stegner/. The Stegner Center is committed to the multidisciplinary study of natural resources and environmental law and policy. The Center provides law students with a wide-range of natural resource and environmental law course offerings taught by faculty with diverse interests and areas of expertise. The Center also hosts a variety of public programs addressing a wide range of environmental law, natural resource law, and protected lands issues, including the annual Stegner Symposium, conferences, workshops, and guest lectures. The Center’s innovative Environmental Dispute Resolution Program was developed to promote collaboration, mediation, and other dispute resolution processes as a means to address contemporary environmental conflicts. Redefining Alternative Dispute Resolution or “ADR” as Additional Dialogue Required, the program focuses on using mediation and other collaborative processes to build long-term relationships and produce enduring on-the-ground results.

Description: This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts addressing the law and policies relating to the protection of land for its ecological, natural, scenic, historic, recreational, cultural, or resource values. Protected lands can be either public or private lands, and include wilderness areas; wildlife refuges and preserves; local, state, and national parks; and Forest Service and BLM lands. Of particular interest are fee title lands held by charitable conservation organizations (land trusts) and lands protected by conservation easements held by land trusts or governmental entities. Protected lands may also result from the operation of environmental law regimes, such as the creation of Habitat Conservation Plans under the U.S. Endangered Species Act and wetland mitigation banks under the U.S. Clean Water Act. Issues relating to the exercise of Native American Sovereignty or Native American statutory and treaty rights, as well as the protection of urban lands, including urban parks, gardens, and “foodscapes,” are also pertinent to this eJournal. Because existing human occupation and use of land often conflicts with protecting the land, this eJournal invites discussion of social issues arising from the removal of people from land or limiting uses of land. Land protection also raises economic issues, including reduction in the value of land and its income producing potential; local, state, and federal tax incentive issues; and the commoditization of property rights through, for example, transfer of development rights programs, carbon offset programs, mitigation banks, and provision of natural or ecosystem services. Land protection raises further issues relating to nonprofit governance, the laws governing the administration of charitable gifts, and the role of the courts as well as federal and state regulators, including the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Internal Revenue Service, and state attorneys general, in ensuring the continued protection of the land. This eJournal is international and interdisciplinary and welcomes submissions from around the globe.
