Professor Anozie teaches property law and various energy and environmental law classes, including a global environmental justice class that incorporates environmental harms and just energy transition in the least developed economies. Before joining Willamette University College of Law, Professor Anozie was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, Arizona State University. 

Prior to teaching, he was an associate in a mid-size law firm’s corporate division in Nigeria where he worked on energy and environmental issues. As a senior associate, he advised domestic and foreign government agencies on energy trade and environmental law issues. 

Professor Anozie’s scholarship lies at the intersection of energy and environmental laws and regulations. Specifically, he addresses the impact of energy laws, regulations, and policies on energy development in various jurisdictions – focusing on disadvantaged communities– and the extraterritorial nature of U.S. energy and environmental policies and how countries react to such policies. Anozie’s scholarship also addresses energy and environmental justice issues, focusing on environmental harm remediation in poor migrant, Native American, and low-income communities.
