Professor Jason Anthony Robison joined the faculty at the UW College of Law as an Assistant Professor during the 2014-2015 academic year. He previously served as a Visiting Professor during the 2013-2014 academic year after completing his S.J.D. at Harvard Law School. Professor Robison has also earned an LL.M. at Harvard Law School, a J.D. at the University of Oregon School of Law, and a B.S. in Environmental Studies at the University of Utah. While completing his J.D., he worked for the Special Litigation Unit of the Oregon Department of Justice, as well as for the Motions Department and Office of Appellate Legal Counsel of the Oregon Court of Appeals. He subsequently clerked for the Oregon Supreme Court, working primarily for former Chief Justice Paul J. De Muniz. Extending from his graduate work at Harvard Law School, Professor Robison has held policy fellowship positions with the Harvard Water Security Initiative, Emmett Environmental Law and Policy Clinic, and Colorado River Governance Initiative at the University of Colorado Law School. He also has served as a research and teaching fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Harvard History Department, and Environmental Science and Public Policy program at Harvard College.

Professor Robison’s research interests in the broad environmental and natural resources field extend to both U.S. domestic law and comparative and international law. His recent scholarship focuses on transboundary water law and policy and Indigenous Peoples. Professor Robison’s S.J.D. dissertation addressed the elaborate body of laws governing water from the Colorado River system in the United States and Mexico (the “Law of the River”). He is now working on an edited volume commemorating the upcoming sesquicentennial of John Wesley Powell’s historic 1869 expedition down the Green and Colorado rivers—tentatively entitled, Vision & Place: John Wesley Powell and Reimagination of the Colorado River Basin. Professor Robison also recently joined Professor Dan Tarlock as co-author of the long-running treatise Law of the Water Rights and Resources. Other projects Professor Robison is currently juggling include an article on water justice for Indigenous Peoples in Australia, Canada, and the United States; an article on the evolution of transboundary water institutions in the Indus River Basin; and an article on the Yellowstone River Compact and Montana v. Wyoming.

Professor Robison loves teaching and learning from his students. His regular courses include Federal Courts, International Environmental and Natural Resources Law, and a three-part Water Law & Policy sequence (Water Law & Policy, Advanced Water Law & Policy, and Advanced Water Law & Policy: Field Seminar). Professor Robison also serves on Doctoral and Master’s committees for candidates in the University of Wyoming’s Ecology Program, Geography and History departments, and Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources.
