Existing legal solutions to stem catastrophic biodiversity loss are failing. Could the answer to saving plants and animals rest in property law? Securing habitat through trusts allows animals to own the land they live on, as participants in the system of property. This surprisingly bi-partisan solution answers some of the most pressing land concerns in the West.

The Young Scholars Program is designed to recognize and establish a relationship with promising scholars early in their academic careers. Recipients are selected based on their accomplishments, the quality of their academic work, and their promise in the field of environmental and natural resources law and policy. The Young Scholars Program was founded in 2005, with the generous support of the Cultural Vision Fund, which has provided annual support for this program. Young Scholars join the S.J. Quinney College of Law to deliver a Young Scholar Lecture at the College of Law, a Downtown CLE to practicing attorneys, and to meet with students. The Young Scholar lecture is published in the student-edited Utah Law Review.

The Young Scholar Program is supported by a generous donation from the Cultural Vision Fund.
