04-3-2013 - Asian American Bar Association Awards Prestigious Scholarship to GGU Law Student Yunah Rha

Each year, legal leaders from the AABA--Joan Haratani, Michael G.W. Lee, Dale Minami and others from the AABA Law Foundation--award the Joe Morozumi Scholarship to a law student who represents the spirit and passion of Joe Morozumi, and in particular, someone dedicated to public interest work. This year, GGU Law 2L Yunah Rha was one of three students selected for this prestigious award.

Yunah Rha is the APALSA External Vice President and currently works at the Women's Employment Rights Clinic as a Certified Law Student. This summer, she will intern with the Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach organization. She is passionate about civil rights issues, particularly access to education, employment rights, and anti-discrimination issues. She is an active participant in the Public Interest/Pro-Bono community in San Francisco. She seeks to promote diversity and legal activism throughout her career.

About the Scholarship: Joe Morozumi was one of the first and finest Asian American trial lawyers in the Bay Area, fearlessly trying significant civil and criminal cases, including wrongful death and first degree murder cases. Joe and his family were interned during World War II, and Joe was fiercely committed to the fight for reparations. In the 1960s and 1970s he successfully represented political activists, conscientious objectors and draft protesters. As one of the founders of the Asian Law Caucus, Joe mentored young attorneys, sharing his vast legal knowledge, experience, and expertise. A fearless, tireless, zealous advocate for justice, Joe died in 1996, but his indomitable spirit and passion for justice lives on.

02-25-2013 - GGU Hosts Northern California Clinical Conference and Legally Asian

On February 23, 2013, GGU Law proudly hosted two highly successful events.

First, the 2013 Northern California Conference, "Integrating Policy into Clinical Work," was a huge success. More than 75 clinical professors from all over the Bay Area, and a few from out of state attended. The keynote address was delivered by Kate Kendell, Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. GGU Law Professors and Clinicians Hina Shah (WERC) and Deborah Behles (ELJC), with the help of student Stephanie Basakis, served as conference planners.

02-14-2013 - Pollution Credit No Longer Necessary for a Shuttered Coal-Fired Power Plant to Be a Source of Security Money for Renewable Energy Development to Benefit the Hopi and Navajo Communities
In a landmark decision, the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) voted to require revenues from the sale of sulfur dioxide allowances from the now shuttered Mohave Generating Station to be used for renewable energy projects that benefit the Hopi Tribe and Navajo Nation. The revenues from these allowances that continue to accrue even after closure will be used to make early deposits that are required for developing projects meeting Californias renewables portfolio standards, with the deposits later being returned for use by additional renewable projects.

GGU Law's Environmental Law and Justice Clinic is lead counsel for the Just Transition Coalition, which sought redress when the California utility that owned the coal-fired power plant applied to the PUC to distribute the revenues to ratepayers. The Clinics Deborah Behles and the former director Alan Ramo before her led this six-year effort, with our students writing numerous briefs and drafting written testimony, and participating in a year-long alternative dispute resolution process in working with grassroots Native American organizations, Sierra Club, and Grand Canyon Trust. The students had to master PUC procedures, California energy law, and the acid rain provisions of the Clean Air Act.

The Mohave power plant in Nevada was shuttered in 2005 after burning coal obtained from mines located on the Navajo Nation and Hopi Tribe lands, which had been transported using one billion gallons of water yearly from the lands. Mohaves operation and closure resulted in devastating environmental and economic impacts to these communities. Read the decision.
