    Increasingly important in our efforts to preserve ecological diversity, historic places, working lands, scenic viewsheds, open space, and public uses of land are conservation tools and processes such as donation of conservation easements, purchase of sensitive lands, and private/public partnerships for
    land conservation. Students will research and review the swiftly developing body of law and legal issues accompanying the use of conservation easements, and will gain a practical understanding of both the legal and
    nonlegal dimensions of land conservation transactions involving conservation easements. In addition, students will actively be engaged in a progressive conservation transaction, beginning with early negotiations, drafting,
    and financial analysis, and proceeding along a spectrum to donation, violation,
    and enforcement of terms of a conservation easement. Each student will be responsible for role playing exercises throughout the conservation transaction process and will assess various financial scenarios, identify and
    resolve disputes related to the conservation transaction, and negotiate and draft a conservation easement.
