UO researchers and scholars were recently featured in stories about climate change lawsuits, data use in the courtroom, whistleblower laws and several more.

Law faculty members have been featured in national press recently. In one, National Geographic interviewed UO law professor Mary Wood about her work on atmospheric trust litigation that is the basis for lawsuits filed by young people against the U.S. government to protect the environment.

Professor Carrie Leonetti talked about privacy issues around Amazon Echo in an online story for PBS NewsHour. And the Phoenix affiliate of National Public Radio interviewed professor Liz Tippett about whistleblower laws.

Also, Greg Dotson wrote about the history of the EPA’s work on climate change for a piece in The Conversation that was picked up by dozens of other outlets.
