Course Description

This two-credit course explores substantive and procedural issues raised in environmental litigation and is designed to develop practical environmental litigation and negotiation skills. The course focuses on litigation-related aspects of selected major environmental regulatory programs, such as the Clean Water Act, RCRA and CERCLA, and on the elements and strategies of environmental litigation. Practical work sessions where students can gain “hands on” experience supplement the academic presentation.
