NadraPhotography_MP6A7901Dave Owen, Professor of Law, University of California, Hastings College of the Law
Professor Dave Owen teaches courses in environmental, natural resources, water, and administrative law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.  His research focuses primarily on water resource management, and some recent projects have addressed policies to expedite dam removals and hydropower upgrades, the intersection of groundwater use regulation and the takings clause, implementation of the Endangered Species Act, and the real-world impact of California’s public trust doctrine.  He also contributes frequently to the Environmental Law Prof Blog.

Professor Owen graduated from Berkeley Law, where he served as editor-in-chief of Ecology Law Quarterly and was selected for the Order of the Coif.  He then clerked for a federal district court judge and then worked for a small law firm in San Francisco, where his practice focused primarily on water law.  He worked on Colorado River allocation, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta litigation, and federal state disputes over the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, among other matters.  In 2007, he began teaching at the University of Maine School of Law.  He joined the Hastings faculty in 2015.

1 hour of CLE (pending).
