Environmental Law (LAW-629-002)
First-year full-time JD only
Introduces students to several of the major domestic environmental law statutes, including: the National Environmental Policy Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act. In studying these statutes, we will continually return to two central themes—the scientific, political, and economic factors that make environmental problems so intractable, and the different regulatory models that are available to government entities that seek to address those problems. This course will cover the same material as the general Environmental Law course, LAW-629, so students will not be eligible to take that course in their second, third or 4th years. (Examination)
