About Jason Robison

Professor Jason Anthony Robison writes and teaches primarily in the Environment, Energy & Natural Resources (EENR) area at the University of Wyoming (UW) College of Law.  He joined the UW law faculty as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2014 after completing his S.J.D. at Harvard Law School.  Water law is Professor Robison's main field of expertise.  His recent scholarship focuses on intersovereign relations over water resources, particularly relations among federal, state, and tribal sovereigns in the American West.  The Colorado River Basin and "Law of the River" have been the chief (but not exclusive) focus of his writing over the past several years.  Professor Robison's background in the EENR area encompasses various law and policy positions with the Harvard Water Security Initiative, Colorado River Governance Initiative, Harvard Law School, Harvard Kennedy School, Oregon Supreme Court, and Special Litigation Unit of the Oregon Department of Justice.
