UT law professor to release study outlining legal solutions to Lake Erie’s algae crisis

Ken Kilbert, associate dean for academic affairs and professor at The University of Toledo College of Law, and director of the College’s Legal Institute of the Great Lakes, will unveil a report he co-authored that addresses the legal tools available to combat Lake Erie’s harmful algal blooms on Wednesday, April 15, at 9:30 a.m. at the National Museum of the Great Lakes in Toledo.

The report, “Moving Forward: Legal Solutions to Lake Erie’s Harmful Algal Blooms,” identifies legal tools available under Ohio and federal law. It was jointly authored by Professor Kilbert and Jack Tuholske, a visiting professor at Vermont Law School and the University of Montana Law School, and director of the Vermont Law School Water & Justice Program. Kilbert, Tuholske and Lucas County Commissioner Carol Contrada will be on hand to discuss the report’s recommendations.
