GWC History

The Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment was created in January, 2013 to build upon the long-standing legacy of Colorado University's Natural Resources Law Center, while pursuing a more ambitious goal of research and innovative problem-solving in the areas of natural resources, energy and the environment.  Its name comes from the contributions of two iconic figures in the law school's environmental law history, David Getches and Charles Wilkinson.
