This course takes a multi-dimensional approach to how international environmental law is practiced "in the field" - in government, business, and non-governmental organizations. The class addresses the international response to contemporary environmental challenges, including climate change, ozone depletion, the loss of wildlife and biological diversity, and transboundary impacts from air and water pollution. The course explores the international environmental law in the context of the global effort to achieve sustainable development, introducing critical linkages with human rights, international trade and international finance.
