New Faculty Enhance Environmental Law, Science, and Policy Curriculum

Building a curriculum to address emerging environmental and science law issues has been a College of Law priority for more than a decade. With Professors David Adelman, David Gantz, Robert Glennon, and Mona Hymel – all nationally noted scholars – students can acquire excellent foundational skills and exposure to diverse ways of thinking about environmental law. Recent additions to an already distinguished faculty further enhance our strong presence among law schools in the Southwest.

Carol Rose, one of the country’s top environmental law scholars, has joined the faculty of the Rogers College of Law as the Visiting Lohse Chair in Water and Natural Resources Law. With research interests in property, land use, environmental law, natural resources law and intellectual property law, she publishes and lectures extensively. Currently on the faculty of Yale Law School, she holds J.D. and M.A. degrees from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in History from Cornell. She previously taught at Stanford, UC/Berkeley, Northwestern, and University of Hawaii law schools. In 1997, she was one of the Rogers College of Law’s Distinguished Faculty Visitors, and in 2003 was the Visiting Lohse Chair.

Kirsten H. Engel’s varied background in academia, public sector practice, teaching, and publishing gives her a broad foundation from which to address current issues in environmental law and policy.
Most recently, she served as Senior Counsel in the Public Protection Bureau in the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General, where she was responsible for oversight of a civil litigation office devoted to environmental protection, civil rights, consumer protection and antitrust, utilities, health care and public charities. She previously worked as a staff attorney for the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agency. As an Associate Professor at Tulane, she has taught Pollution Control Law, Administrative Law, Hazardous Waste Law, Public and Private Regulation of Toxic Substances, International Environmental Law, and an Environmental Justice Seminar. She has been a Visiting Associate Law Professor at Harvard and Vanderbilt. Engel received a J.D. from Northwestern, where she was the Note & Comment Editor for the Law Review.

Engel is widely published on varied topics in her field, from environmental ‘federalism’ to solid waste landfill regulation to the deregulation of electricity. Her knowledge of environmental law issues is broad, deep, and informed by the pragmatism of spending time at the frontlines of environmental law and policy.
