Incoming Lohse Chair in Water and Natural Resources Law, Carol M. Rose, was honored last weekend at Yale Law School, where she has taught since 1989. The Yale Law faculty celebrated her prolific scholarship and teaching on November 11 and 12, in a seminar entitled, "The Properties of Carol Rose." Yale Law Dean Harold Koh and a distinguished list of property law scholars from a dozen universities discussed Professor Rose’s contributions to their field.
About 100 people attended the event, including Rogers College of Law Dean and Milton O. Riepe Professor Toni M. Massaro; Udall Professor of Law & Public Policy Robert Glennon; and Gary Libecap, Anheuser Bush Professor and Professor of Economics and Law at the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management. The New Haven celebration begins the transition of Professor Rose to the Rogers College of Law, where she has previously served as a Visiting Professor. On January 26, 2006, she will be installed as the Lohse Chair in Water and Natural Resources Law.
"Yale's celebration,” said Dean Massaro, “underscored everything wonderful about Carol Rose, the ways in which her scholarship, teaching, and friendship have sustained and enhanced the Yale Law Community. We welcome those same qualities to the UA Law Community. Professor Rose, an extraordinary individual, will add immeasurably to the Rogers College of Law."
