Course Description

This course is an introduction to a broad variety of environmental laws. The course will focus on federal environmental law, regulation, and enforcement, with some discussion of domestic policy and international environmental law. Environmental legal issues are often intertwined with complex moral and scientific questions, and this course will consider those issues. The statutes discussed in this course include the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and the Endangered Species Act. Through a series of in-class discussions and practical exercises, students in this course will learn not only black letter law but a practical way to apply environmental law in real world situations.
