Sacrificing The Salmon: A Legal History Of The Decline Of Columbia Basin Salmon (Full Text Part 2 Of 2), Michael Blumm Jan 2022

Sacrificing The Salmon: A Legal History Of The Decline Of Columbia Basin Salmon (Full Text Part 2 Of 2), Michael Blumm

Books & Contributions to Books

Salmon remain the cultural and economic soul of the Pacific Northwest, a species whose very life cycle largely defines the region. At the center of the salmon region lies the Columbia River, which once supported the world's largest salmon runs and which now is home to the world's largest interconnected hydroelectric system. These massive federal and non-federal dams have devastated Columbia Basin salmon runs, some of which are now extinct, others are on life-support.

This book tells the story of the decline of the Columbia Basin salmon in the 20th century. But it begins earlier, with the signing of mid-19th …


Natural Resources Law: Private Rights And The Public Interest, Eric Freyfogle, Michael Blumm, Blake Hudson Jan 2015

Natural Resources Law: Private Rights And The Public Interest, Eric Freyfogle, Michael Blumm, Blake Hudson

Contributions to Books

This casebook offers a view of natural resources law rich in history, yet exposing students to the complexities of practicing natural resources law in the 21st century. Given that the focus of most Natural Resources Law casebooks is public lands and public law (often at the federal level), this casebook is unique in its primary focus on natural resource conflicts on private lands and its significant focus on private law (though public law is also a focus). While we include chapters on federal public lands and areas of federal primacy like wetlands regulation and endangered species protection, our focus is …


The Public Trust Doctrine In Environmental And Natural Resources Law, Second Edition, Mary C. Wood, Michael Blumm Jan 2015

The Public Trust Doctrine In Environmental And Natural Resources Law, Second Edition, Mary C. Wood, Michael Blumm

Contributions to Books

The public trust doctrine (PTD) is an ancient property law doctrine which first surfaced in Roman law in the Justinian Code, was revived in medieval England largely through the efforts of Sir Mathew Hale, and became entrenched in American law in the nineteenth century through the process of statehood. In the twentieth century, the doctrine became a favorite of the law professoriate and the environmental community for its potential to recognize public rights in private property. Thus, the doctrine both promotes public access to trust resources and justifies public regulation of them. It also equips the public with the right …

Global Labor And Employment Law For The Practicing Lawyer, Henry Drummonds Jan 2010

Global Labor And Employment Law For The Practicing Lawyer, Henry Drummonds

Books & Contributions to Books

The global labor markets require workable and predictable law, forums, and recognition of judgments for the enforcement of cross-border employment contracts. Global labor markets make traditional approaches outdated. Yet regulations in the EU now answer these questions for European postings, and provide a framework for building a predictable system generally in the emerging world-wide markets for labor. Party autonomy often controls, but yields to protective rules requiring application of the law of the place of labor regarding non-waiveable employment rights.

Traditionally, private international law affecting these questions found expression at the national or sub-national level. Choice of law rules in …
