In the Spotlight: Michael Wolf
In addition to new Dean Robert Jerry and Legal Information Center Director Mary Kathleen Price, both who arrive in July, UF Law will welcome in Fall 2003 Environmental and Land Use Law professors Michael Wolf, Mary Jane Angelo (arriving in Fall 2004) and Christine Klein; Associate Professor Cally Jordan and Assistant Professor Christopher Peterson. And George Yin will serve in Spring 2004 as a visitor in the Freeland Eminent Scholar in Taxation Chair.
University of Richmond Law and History Professor Michael Wolf earned his B.A. from Emory University, A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard, and J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. His focus is on Property, Land-Use Planning, Environmental Law, Environmental Law and Policy and Local Government. He also has been visiting professor at The American University Washington College of Law, Associate Professor at Oklahoma City University School of Law, and research associate and teaching fellow at Harvard. He is a prolific and widely published author. “Michael draws on legal history extensively in his work on land use law; and his keen interest in the intersection of land use and environmental law is a great fit with our program, which emphasizes the relationship of these two fields,” said Program Director Alyson Flournoy. “As the Richard E. Nelson Chair of State and Local Government Law, his interest in land use will enrich our program in state and local government law.”
