The Anne J. Schneider Lecture Series

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.

The 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.
