Conservation Dialogues: Attorney General’s Office

On Wednesday, January 28, the Virginia Coastal Policy Clinic (VCPC) and the Student Environmental and Animal Law Society collaborated to invite Deputy Attorney General John Daniel and Senior Assistant Attorney General Lynne Rhode for the first of a series of Conservation Dialogues. This series will be held the last Wednesday of every month through April at the William & Mary Law School. Here’s what some attendees had to say about the experience:

“Deputy Attorney General Daniel has a uniquely deep understanding of, and history with, coastal policy issues in Virginia, having been the first Secretary of Natural Resources, an advisor to numerous Governors, and a private practice attorney for several prominent law firms.  His interest in sharing this history with William & Mary law students, and seeking their perspectives on contemporary environmental issues and challenges, provides the participating students with an extraordinary learning opportunity.” – Roy A. Hoagland, VCPC Director

“Having John W. Daniel II and Lynne Rhode engage in dialogue with the W&M students was a rare opportunity for us to truly see some of the inner workings of our Commonwealth’s government. The discussion also highlighted how difficult it is sometimes to accomplish societies’ goals while ‘doing the right thing.’” – Eric Jabs, VCPC student Spring 2015

  “I thought it was great that Mr. Daniel wanted to start a dialogue between practicing attorneys and students. The subjects that he spoke on were very interesting, and he really livened things up through stories about his real-world experiences in environmental law.” – Hannah Fish, VCPC student Fall 2014
