September 24, 2013
PORTLAND, Maine – Professor Sarah Schindler of the University of Maine School of Law has been named the Distinguished Young Scholar of 2013 by the Pace Environmental Law Center at Pace Law School.
Jason J. Czarnezki, Gilbert and Sarah Kerlin Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law at Pace Law, had this to say about the award:
“Sarah engages in cutting-edge and creative work at the intersection of sustainable development and land use law. Her most recent articles, Banning Lawns (George Washington Law Review), Of Backyard Chickens and Front-yard Gardens: The Conflict Between Local Governments and Locavores (Tulane Law Review), and The Future of Abandoned Big Box Stores: Legal Solutions to the Legacies of Poor Planning (Colorado Law Review) have been widely praised as creative and insightful additions to the fields of local government and land use law.
Professor Schindler will present her work and collaborate with other environmental law scholars at Pace Law during the week of Sept. 23.
At Maine Law, Professor Schindler teaches property, land use, local government, real estate transactions, and animal law. She received the Professor of the Year award in 2013. Prior to joining the Maine Law faculty in 2009, Professor Schindler clerked for Judge Will Garwood of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in Austin, Texas and practiced in the area of land use and environmental law at Morrison and Foerster in San Francisco.
