Honoring Professor Rodgers

William Rodgers is recognized as a founder and one of the leading figures in U.S. Environmental Law. His five decade long career has had immense impacts on water resource issues in Washington State, including involvement in numerous court cases in support of Indian tribes and traditional fishing rights and sustainable fisheries in the Pacific Northwest. Some of his achievements include:

  • Involvement in the case U.S. vs. Washington to the Supreme Court, leading to the Boldt Decision, which reaffirmed historic fishing rights to Indian tribes in Washington State.
  • Publishing Environmental Law in Indian Country and co-authoring The Si'lailo Way: Salmon, Indians and Law on the Columbia River.
  • Serving on the committee for Defining Best Available Sciences for Fisheries Management with The National Academies.
  • Active involvement in the Exxon Valdez "reopener," including publishing The Exxon Valdez Reopener: Natural Resource Damage Settlements, and Roads Not Taken.

Please join us to help honor Professor Rodgers and his achievements at Celebrate Water 2016!
