Much of ASLA’s work is devoted to positioning the landscape architecture profession at the forefront of environmental public policy development.  The Office of Policy, Economics, and Innovation is the primary policy arm for the EPA.  Prior to her current position, Lisa Heinzerling was a member of President Obama’s Transition Team for EPA and served as Senior Climate Policy Counsel since his inauguration. After finishing law school, where she served as editor-in-chief of the University of Chicago Law Review, Ms. Heinzerling clerked for Judge Richard A. Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and Justice William J. Brennan, Jr., of the U.S. Supreme Court. She was a Skadden Fellow at Business & Professional People for the Public Interest, in Chicago, and for three years practiced environmental law in the Massachusetts Attorney General's office. She has served as a law professor at Georgetown since 1993 and has been a visiting professor at the Harvard and Yale law schools. Her scholarship in environmental law has been published in the Yale Law Journal, Harvard Law Review, University of Chicago Law Review, and Georgetown Law Journal, among other places.  She is the author, with Frank Ackerman, of Priceless: On Knowing the Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing (The New Press 2004). She was the lead author of the winning briefs for petitioners in Massachusetts v. EPA, in which the Supreme Court held that the Clean Air Act gives EPA the authority to regulate greenhouse gases.
