This course’s practical simulation will put students into teams to address a real-world environmental policy issue. Each team will approach the issue from a different perspective (for example, one team will represent environmental interests while another will represent a regulated industry or the government). Students will prepare memos, comment letters, presentations, and public statements based on their own research, in response to the arguments of their classmates, and in consideration of their overall strategic and legal goals.
This course may satisfy a ULW or experiential credit requirement. An individual student must select ULW or experiential credit and will earn one or the other, but not both, for the course.
