Climate Change and the Law Summer Program

This year there none of the seminars will focus specifically on climate change and the law.* While the other seminars offered during the Environmental Law Summer Session are not specifically focused on climate change, many (i.e. Environmental Compliance and Enforcement, International Business and Environment, and International Institutions and Environmental Protection) will also touch on climate change issues.

*Previous Years: The Summer Session on Environmental Law frequently has offered a Climate Change and the Law Program consisting of three seminars. These courses are not likely to be offered this summer, but may be in the future. Over the course of three weeks, you could study a variety of topics related to climate change and the law. In the past seminars offered have included one that focused on how the European Union addresses climate change, one that focused on U.S. states and their energy policies focused on addressing climate change, and one that focused on the international climate change regime and ongoing negotiations. Taken together these seminars provided an overview of the current state of climate change and the law around the world.
