Dale D. Goble 2005

Dale D. Goble, professor of law, joined the University of Idaho faculty in 1982. Through his research, scholarship, interdisciplinary work and connection to public policy, Goble has become one of the nation’s foremost authorities on natural resource law. He has comprehensively synthesized American wildlife law and policy in "Federal Wildlife Statutes" and "Wildlife Law: Cases and Materials." The textbook on wildlife law is used in virtually every law school that has a course on the subject. Goble also has authored "Northwest Lands, Northwest Peoples: Readings in Environmental History," which resulted from a symposium of cross-disciplinary scholars on Northwest environmental history. It is the only anthology available on the subject. Goble was the leading force behind a four-year interdisciplinary study examining the Endangered Species Act. He has helped create the concurrent juris doctorate/master of science environmental science program at the University of Idaho and has served as its co-director since its inception.
