The Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics will host the fourth annual Louis D. Brandeis Lecture with John Copeland Nagle, John N. Matthews Professor of Law at Notre Dame, on Wednesday, April 15, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Gunder Conference Room.
Nagle will speak on "Humility and Environmental Law." Nagle joined the law faculty at Notre Dame in 1998. He is the co-author of casebooks on property law and "The Law of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Management," and of a forthcoming environmental law casebook.
His book "Law's Environment: How Environmental Law Affects the Environment," will be published by Yale University Press in 2008. His other writings have explored such topics as the relationship between religion and environmental law, the scope of congressional power to protect endangered species, alternative approaches to campaign finance reform, and the competing roles of Congress and the courts in correcting statutory mistakes.
His articles on environmental law, statutory interpretation, and election law have been published in journals such as the Yale Law Journal, the Columbia Law Review, the Michigan Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, and the New York University Law Review.
