Wyoming Water Law
In the first article published in the Land and Water Law Review, Dean Frank J. Trelease wrote,
[I]n Wyoming, there are substantial restrictions designed to tie the water to the land. A long struggle has there taken place over the objects of these restrictions and the exceptions that should be made to them. The laws of that state are thus an excellent subject for a part of a broad investigation of the effect of law on the efficient use of water in the West.
In keeping with the purpose of devoting scholarship to "the law of the development and conservation of" the "lakes, rivers and trout streams," the 2013-2014 Editorial Board is pleased to present a special section on Wyoming Water Law.
An article written by Professor Lawrence J. MacDonnell leads the special section. The article is adapted from a chapter of his book, TREATISE ON WYOMING WATER LAW. Professor MacDonnell taught Water Law, Public Lands, and Natural Resources Law at the University of Wyoming College of Law between 2008 and 2013. He also served as the Faculty Advisor for the Wyoming Law Review. The comments in the special section derive from the Advanced Water Law class Professor MacDonnell taught at the College of Law in 2013. Brian J. Fuller, Rebecca J. Zisch, Kevin Carrico, and Jason Johnson wrote the comments.
