TALLAHASSEE—Water law expert Robin Kundis Craig has been named the Attorneys’ Title Insurance Fund Professor at Florida State University College of Law. The professorship, which is designed to recruit or to retain an exceptionally productive legal scholar in real estate law, was established by the Attorneys’ Title Insurance Fund, Inc. (The Fund), the nation’s first Bar-related® title insurance underwriter.

Professor Craig is nationally recognized for her work with the Clean Water Act, the connection of fresh water regulation to ocean water quality, marine biodiversity and marine protected areas, property rights in fresh water, and science and water resource protection. She has published The Clean Water Act and the Constitution (Environmental Law Institute 2004), Environmental Law in Context (West 2005) and more than 20 law review articles and numerous shorter works. Her research interests include the relationships among real property rights, water rights and environmental regulation.

“Professor Craig’s expertise in environmental property rights makes her a superb addition to our program,” Dean Don Weidner said. U.S. News & World Report ranks the Environmental Law Program at Florida State University College of Law as 14th strongest in the nation.

This gift is the latest in The Fund’s commitment to enhancing the practice of real estate law. For four decades, The Fund has provided law schools with annual gifts to promote real property education. Beyond this most recent gift, The Fund has provided the College of Law with more than $20,000 in curriculum grants over the past 40 years.

With this gift, we are carrying out The Fund’s mission to preserve and facilitate the practice of real estate law,” said Charles J.
