Student Research


Students host post sessions at a recent Research Colloquium held in Hardin Hall, on UNL's East Campus.

Students at the UNL College of Law may choose to pursue a certificate in the Environmental and Natural Resources Program of Concentrated Study. This program of Concentrated Study consists of at least fifteen credit hours in no fewer than five upper level courses identified by a faculty member as central to the environmental and natural resources law field.

Papers posted here are academic works generated by upper-level law students who have studied or are studying water and natural resources law at UNL, under the guidance of WRRI Steering Committee Member and Associate Professor of Law, Sandra Zellmer. Students chose the topics presented here, and their works delve into current and progressive subjects related to water law affecting Nebraska and the West.
