Save Ourselves, Then and Now: Revisiting LAs Public Trust Doctrine

Uptown Campus
Tulane Law School

The Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy will be hosting an event with Judge James L. Dennis, Oliver Houck, and Lisa Jordan in which they discuss the public trust doctrine in Louisiana and the case that brought it about, Save Ourselves v. Louisiana Environmental Control Commission. The public trust doctrine requires that the government protect and conserve certain lands held in trust for use by the public. Where did this doctrine come from? How did it develop? Where is it headed? These are just some of the many questions we’ll explore during this talk. A Q&A session will follow to give audience members a chance to ask questions. Due to COVID restrictions attendance is limited to 25 in-person Tulane faculty & students only and will be live streamed via Zoom webinar. Please RSVP .
