Governor David Freudenthal
State of Wyoming

Dave Freudenthal took office as Wyoming's thirty-first governor on January 6, 2003. Born in Thermopolis, Wyoming in 1950, the 54-year-old Democrat grew up on his family farm north of town. Before earning the title of "Gov. Dave," Freudenthal served nearly eight years as the U.S. attorney for Wyoming, nominated by former Governor Mike Sullivan and appointed by President Bill Clinton. He had earlier spent sixteen years running his own private law practice in Cheyenne. Gov. Freudenthal will speak generally about natural resource federalism from the perspective of a state with a high proportion of federally-owned land.

Professor Holly Doremus
Boalt, UC Davis

Prof. Holly Doremus will speak about ESA implementation, including but not limited to the ongoing dispute between Wyoming and the U.S. about gray wolf delisting.

Professor Antonio Rossmann

Prof. Rossmann will reassess Justice Black's 1963 assertion that "state law has no place" in governance of the Lower Colorado River.

Professor Dan Farber
