Manson Leaves Faculty Post To Join Westlands
May 06, 2010

Craig Manson, UOP '81, will leave the faculty this summer to accept a
permanent position as general counsel for the Westlands Water District, the
largest agricultural water district in the United States.

Manson, a former U.S. Department of the Interior Undersecretary, has served
as a distinguished visitor and lecturer in law at Pacific McGeorge since
January 2006 teaching Environmental Law, Administrative Law and Public
Policy Development.


A former Superior Court judge and general counsel for the California
Department of Fish & Game, Manson previously taught as an adjunct professor
at Pacific McGeorge from 1993 to 2001. In 2004, he was honored as the law
school's Alumnus of the Year during his service as Interior Department
Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks.

Thomas Birmingham, UOP '83, is the general manager of the Fresno-based
Westlands Water District. The huge agency, whose farms produce $1 billion
worth and wood and fiber annually, has been in the middle of California's
political water wars for decades. Manson will be stationed in Sacramento
while he serves as its legal counsel.
