Professor Larson joined the University of Oklahoma College of Law faculty in 2013.  He teaches Property, Administrative Law, Water Law, and other courses in the field of natural resource law.

Prior to joining the faculty, Professor Larson taught at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law.  Previously, he practiced environmental and natural resource law in Phoenix, Arizona for several years and studied water science, policy, and management at the University of Oxford as a Weidenfeld Scholar.

Professor Larson's scholarship focuses on water law and policy, particularly the security and international aspects of water resource management.  His most recent paper, published in the Utah Law Review, uses the example of desalination in international river basins to propose reforms to international law to encourage the responsible development and implementation of new technologies to facilitate water security.
