James E. Rogers College of Law
The College of Law at the University of Arizona is a nationally prominent law school that has developed an outstanding academic program to prepare lawyers for leadership and service throughout the State, the country and internationally. Our core values - justice, professional integrity, public leadership and community service -impact all of our programs, activities and decisions. The Program on Economics, Law, and the Environment (ELE) is a research and education collaboration between the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics and the James Rogers College of Law. The ELE program includes a large group of faculty affiliates with strong research records in the area of environmental and resource questions. The ELE program is the only organization to explicitly merge the disciplines of economics and law into the study of the environment and natural resources. In collaboration with The Institute for Environment and Society and The Climate Assessment for the Southwest, ELE held an “Adaptation to Climate Change in the Desert Southwest” conference in 2009.
