Lee Fennell, the Max Pam Professor of Law at the University of
Chicago Law School, presented the Fall 2020 Distinguished Lecture to
more than 120 students, professors and practitioners.

On Wednesday, October 21, Max Pam Professor of Law Lee Fennell, of the University of Chicago Law School, presented FSU Law’s Fall 2020 Distinguished Lecture. The event was hosted by our nationally ranked environmental law program. Her lecture, Visibility and Indivisibility in Resource Arrangements, shed light on dilemmas in which valued resources, such as highways, bridges, pipelines and wildlife corridors, only retain value if left undivided. Fennell specializes in property, land use and housing law, as well as state and local government law, torts, social welfare law and public finance. She is the author of two books, most recently publishing Slices and Lumps: Division and Aggregation in Law and Life (University of Chicago Press 2019), and many articles and essays. Before joining the University of Chicago law faculty in 2007, she taught at the University of Texas and the University of Illinois. Her lecture is one of many scholarly events that has taken place at FSU Law this semester in areas including environmental law, business, human rights and many more. Despite COVID-19, we have held numerous virtual enrichment events for students and alumni hosted by the law school and by our resilient student organizations. We are proud that the intellectual life of our community continues to thrive!
