Anne J. Schneider, one of the foremost water law attorneys in
California, was a founding partner in Ellison Schneider Harris &
Donlan. Anne was a leading water attorney in California from 1977 to her
passing in July, 2010.
annual Anne J. Schneider Lecture was inspired by Anne, who expressed to
several of her close friends a sense that the natural resources arena
needed creative thinking to guide solutions to the many vexing
challenges facing California and the West. She quietly and individually
challenged those she knew to think in novel and different ways about a
new paradigm for sound natural resources and water policy in California.
The goal of the Anne J. Schneider Fund Lecture Series is to encourage
professional and personal commitment to water law and policy, and the
conservation of our special landscapes, in memory of Anne Schneider’s
lifelong devotion to these areas. The Lecture is held in her memory and
features a prominent and accomplished leader who has focused on the
intellectual advancement of natural resources law and policy in the
Western United States.
