Katrina Wyman

In the spring of 2013, Professor Katrina Wyman taught Torts.  In 2013-2014, Professor Wyman is teaching Property and Advanced Environmental Law.

During 2012-2013, Professor Wyman drafted an article with Nicholas Williams, who received his JD in the spring of 2013.  Their article, which will be published in the Florida Law Review, is about the legal boundary between private property, and land subject to the public trust, on the nation’s coastal shores.  The article examines why this legal boundary generally migrates in accordance with physical changes on the ground, and whether the legal boundary generally should continue to migrate in an era of climate change, when the public trust likely will encroach on privately owned lands as sea level rises.  Professor Wyman also continued her research on the appropriate responses to human migration induced by climate change.
