UA Law Professor Kirsten Engel

Professor Engel will be running for House of Rep. in Arizona, in LD 10. There will be an open seat since Rep. Bruce Wheeler is retiring.

“Kirsten Engel is the Charles E. Ares Professor of Law at the James E. Rogers College of Law where she teaches and researches in the areas of environmental and administrative law. The emphasis of her more recent scholarship is the response of state and local governments to climate change in the United States and especially the constitutional and economic impediments these governments face seeking to mitigate climate change in the absence of comprehensive federal climate change legislation.

Engel is the co-author of an environmental law textbook, book chapters and articles. Her work appears in journals such as the UCLA Law Review Discourse, the Minnesota Law Review, and theEcology Law Quarterly.

Prior to joining the law faculty at the University of Arizona, she held numerous permanent and temporary appointments within academia and in the public and nonprofit sectors, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Massachusetts’ Attorney General’s Office, and Harvard, Vanderbilt, and Tulane Law Schools.”

    Professor Engel spoke today at DGT and said that on MLK Day “we still have a long way to go for racial equality in America”, that Arizona State Legislature has been “hijacked”by the Republicans, that her 3 top priorities if she wins are 1) Education (K -12 , plus higher ed), 2) Economy (better paying jobs, good schools, trained work force), 3) environment, esp. water issues being as she is an environmental lawyer/professor. She & family moved here 10 years ago from Chicago via Boston, and is against Prop. 123 as “stealing from children’s future.” Questions from audience were about her stand on criminal justice &private prisons, the gas tax, student vouchers for charter schools, desalination plants, Prop. 123 litigation, a state bank, and proposed Rosemont Mine. Her campaign kick off is Friday Jan. 22 (see Calendar).
