Professor Heidi Gorovitz Robertson attended the Association of American Law Schools Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. in January 2020. At this meeting Robertson completed her term as Chair of the AALS Section on Natural Resources and Energy Law. As Chair, Robertson moderated a program jointly sponsored by the Sections on Natural Resources and Energy Law, North American Cooperation, Environmental Law, and State and Local Government Law — Transnational Environmental Issues & the Role of States, Provinces, Cities, and Indigenous Communities.
In addition, Robertson was the organizer and moderator for the Works-in-Progress Session for the Sections on Environmental Law, Natural Resources and Energy Law, and Agriculture and Food Law. This WIP session was attended by more than 50 participants and commenters from the three sponsoring sections. The section’s main program, which Robertson helped plan, was co-sponsored with the Section on Environmental Law and Administrative Law — Agency Action on Environmental and Natural Resources Law in the Trump Era. The Section on Natural Resources and Energy also held a field trip to the National Zoo, during which the group benefited from zoo tours by docents knowledgeable about the zoo’s species conservation efforts.
Robertson was re-elected to the Executive Committees of the Section on Natural Resources and Energy Law and the Section on Environmental Law. She is C|M’s Steven W. Percy Professor of Law and Professor of Environmental Studies at the Levin College of Urban Affairs.
