Hi everyone, ESAblawg.com is back.
2011 was challenging; an abundance of Endangered Species Act announcements and litigation, plus my own professional chaos, led to a hiatus. But 2012 comes with a new professional path, and a new plan for ESA blawg. First, my path: I'm now a law professor and Assistant Director of the LLM Program in Environmental Sustainability at St. Thomas University School of Law, in Miami Gardens, FL. In addition, I was recently elected Chair of the Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee, and I am serving as a consultant on administrative and environmental law issues to Jones Foster Johnston & Stubbs, P.A. in West Palm Beach, FL. Given these many hats, I needed to make ESAblawg a bit more contained. So I've got a three part plan.
1. Microblogging. "Routine" items related to the Endangered Species Act, such as Federal Register announcements and many U.S. District Court case references, will be published on Twitter at #ESAlawyer
2. Delegating. Law students at St. Thomas University are now working on Earthblawg.com, which will become a useful resource, not just on the ESA, but on other wildlife laws too.
3. Focusing. On ESAblawg.com, I intend to publish more in-depth material and monthly musings on the pro's, con's and realities of the Endangered Species Act.
And now, back to work...
Thanks for reading, still.
