Professor Gerald Korngold
Students will work on projects from The Nature Conservancy (a leading national and global conservation organization, based in Arlington, VA) as assigned through the senior vp/general counsel of TNC. These projects would cover legal and related policy issues related to TNC’s work in the public and private arenas. Depending on what is happening at the time, this might be position papers on public conservation issues, education materials for the website, working on private conservation transactions facilitated by TNC, legislative work, etc. The students will work on some projects jointly, others alone, but we will meet as a working collaborative group to discuss each other’s work, make suggestions, provide feedback, etc. The semester will begin with readings and class meetings led by the professor to provide a common background for all participants on conservation law. Class meetings will continue throughout the year, approximately every other week.
