Watershed Institutions in the U.S.: Emergence and Evolution

Tony Arnold, Professor of Law, Affiliated Professor of Urban Planning, Chair of the Center for Land Use and Environmental Responsibility, University of Louisville

S.J. Quinney College of Law, Room 106

1 hour CLE, email communications@law.utah.edu

Tony Arnold is the Boehl Chair in Property and Land Use, Professor of Law, and Affiliated Professor of Urban Planning at the University of Louisville.  An internationally recognized interdisciplinary scholar in the environmental regulation of land use, water, and property, Professor Arnold chairs the University of Louisville’s Center for Land Use and Environmental Responsibility. 

Scholars and professionals have selected Professor Arnold’s Harvard Environmental Law Review article on property as a web of interests and his Wyoming Law Review article on environmental conservation and the Mono Lake case as among the best law journal articles published in land use and environmental law.  His books include Wet Growth: Should Water Law Control Land Use?, Fundamentals of Modern Property Law, 6th ed. (with Rabin, Kwall, & Kwall), and the forthcoming Environmental Sustainability Law and Policy (with Saxer, Osofsky, & Tarlock).  His works have been widely cited and used not only by scholars in many disciplines but also by government agencies at all levels, industry and business groups, and environmental and community-based groups.  Much of his current work is on watershed institutions, and the dynamic, adaptive evolution of complex, interconnected social and ecological systems.

Professor Arnold received his Doctor of Jurisprudence with Distinction from Stanford Law School, and his Bachelor of Arts with Highest Distinction, Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Kansas.  He has held distinguished chairs or visitorships at the University of Florida, the University of Houston, the University of Wyoming, Chapman University, and the University of Puerto Rico, and has been a distinguished lecturer at Florida State University, the University of Colorado, the University of Montana, the University of Wyoming, and the College of William and Mary.  He is an affiliate of interdisciplinary centers at the University of Florida, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, the University of Colorado, and the University of Louisville.

Professor Arnold practiced law in Texas, served as a city attorney, and was Chairman of the Planning Commission of Anaheim, California.  A pragmatic problem-solver, he has served on many government commissions and task forces and the boards of several nonprofit organizations dedicated to natural resource conservation, community-based economic development, civil rights, affordable housing, higher education, and environmental protection.  He enjoys western horseback riding, hiking, gardening, and participation in his church’s ministries.
