Professor Jason Anthony Robison will be teaching courses in land use, property law, and water law as a Visiting Professor at the UW College of Law during the 2013-2014 academic year. Professor Robison comes to UW after earning his S.J.D. at Harvard Law School (HLS) where his fields of study included property law, water law, and western environmental history. Professor Robison’s dissertation, “The Law of the Colorado River: A Contemporary Perspective on Its Transformation,” and recent scholarship focus on the elaborate body of laws governing allocation and management of water from the Colorado River and its tributaries in the United States and Mexico – colloquially, the “Law of the River.” Focusing on environmental and natural resources law and policy at all stages of his education, Professor Robison also has 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. In conjunction with his graduate work at HLS during the past several years, Professor Robison held policy fellowship positions with the Harvard Water Security Initiative, HLS Emmett Environmental Law and Policy Clinic, and Colorado River Governance Initiative at the University of Colorado Law School. He also 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 loves playing music – a classically trained string bassist – and getting outdoors as much as possible.
