McGeorge Law Professor Co-Authors PPIC Report on Calif. Freshwater Ecosystems

Associate Professor of Lawyering Skills and Faculty Director for Online Learning Jennifer Harder recently co-authored a report for the Public Policy Institute of California. Professor Harder joins a dozen other water experts and California professors on the report, “A Path Forward for California’s Freshwater Ecosystems.” It has gained attention from news services, environmental nonprofits and California state regulatory agencies, such as the Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB). The report is also featured on courthousenews.com, a nationwide news service that serves lawyers and specializes in Civil Litigation.

These ecosystems are vital to the economic, social and environmental health of the state, but have been threatened by pollution, non-native species and climate change (Mount et. al, 2019).
