Associate Professor Jamison Colburn from Western New England College School of Law will join the Wallace Stegner Center as a Stegner Center Young Scholar from October 1-3, 2007. The Young Scholars Program, which is made possible by the generous support of the Cultural Vision Fund, 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.
At Western New England College, Colburn specializes in environmental law and policy, but also teaches courses in constitutional law. Before embarking on his teaching career, Colburn was an enforcement litigator for the United States Environmental Protection Agency. His research appears in the Alabama Law Review, Arizona State Law Journal, Florida State University Law Review, Ecology Law Quarterly, Environmental Law, and elsewhere.
