Schreiner professor chosen to be Vermont Law School Summer Scholar

Anne Berre

The Vermont Law School has chosen Dr. Anne Berre, instructor of business at Schreiner University, to receive its 2009 Environmental Law and Policy Scholarship. Dr. Berre has a Doctor of Law degree from Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Ga. The Environmental Law Center has been named the top program of its kind in the nation by U.S. World Report for 11 consecutive years and selects its Summer Scholar through a national competition. The recipient must teach law at an undergraduate or postgraduate institution and be a working scholar.
Dr. Berre will be in residence at the center for two weeks and will participate in an intensive advanced course, Trade and the Environment.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to bring back to Schreiner a higher level of understanding in this critical area, “said Berre, who hopes to apply her work at the center in designing an interdisciplinary course in environmental law and policy for Schreiner students and the community. She will team-teach the university’s first course in environmental issues to incoming freshmen this Fall with Dr. Kiley Miller, assistant professor of chemistry, and Cristina Martinez, director of career services and associate dean of student services at Schreiner, in Schreiner’s Interdisciplinary Studies program.
