The control, use, and protection of water resources affect all jurisdictions in the U.S. Water and natural resources lawyers, landmen, and others will find the Water Law Newsletter, published 3 times per year, invaluable. Special Institutes such as the Water-Energy Nexus, Water Quality and Wetlands, and Water Acquisition & Management for Oil & Gas Development provide a focused education on particular areas in which water plays a critical role. In addition, a section of the Annual Institute is devoted to water law.
Water law issues are addressed in detail in books such as Wyoming Water Law and Nevada Law of Water Rights. Papers presented at Annual and Special Institutes are extremely useful references and are available either by purchasing them in a complete manual (digital, hard copy, and/or audio) or individually on the Foundation’s Digital Library, Westlaw, or Lexis.
