Justin R. Pidot, former attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, Environment & Natural Resources Division, will join the Denver Law faculty as an Assistant Professor in August. He will teach Environmental Law as well as Property Law.
Professor Pidot, who most recently served with the Appellate Section of the Environment & Natural Resources Division, is a graduate of the Stanford Law School where he served as editor-in-chief of the Stanford Environmental Law Journal. His undergraduate degree is from Wesleyan University.
Before joining the Department of Justice, Professor Pidot clerked for Judge Judith W. Rogers, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He also completed a fellowship at the Georgetown Environmental Law & Policy Institute.
Don C. Smith, Director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program said, "Justin Pidot was an appellate litigator at the Department of Justice, where he presented argument in more than a dozen federal appellate cases and acted as the staff attorney on two cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. He will be a great addition to what is already one of the best environmental and natural resources faculties in the U.S."
