Abstract

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia left a long and indelible jurisprudential shadow on environmental law. Over his nearly 30 years on the bench, the former professor of administrative law shaped — sometimes single-handedly — a multitude of areas that serve as stock-and-trade of environmental, energy, and natural resources lawyering across the nation. This article focuses on standing, takings, and deference to environmental agency rulemaking.

Keywords: environmental law, constitutional law, Antonin Scalia, natural resources law, energy law
