Wayne State University Law School Professor Noah Hall took his expertise on environmental and water law to Lansing on Feb. 4 to facilitate a workshop for Michigan legislators about Great Lakes Policy.
More than 20 lawmakers attended the workshop, along with legislative staff members, other state environmental officials and a representative from the Canadian Consulate General.
Hall also served as a speaker during the event, joined by Michigan State University Professor Bill Taylor, associate director of the Michigan Sea Grant College Program; Tim Eder, executive director of the Great Lakes Commission; and James H. I. Weakley, president of the Lake Carriers’ Association.
After a general overview of the Great Lakes, government responsibility for their management, and actions to protect and restore the lakes, Hall facilitated discussions on Asian Carp and other Invasive Species, Lakes Levels and Water Management and Ballast Water Regulation.
Hall teaches courses on environmental law, administrative law, water law and international environmental law at Wayne, and is a former manager of the Great Lakes Water Resources Program for the National Wildlife Federation. He is the founder of the Great Lakes Environmental Law Center, and is widely published and sought as a speaker for his expertise.
