ENVIRONMENTAL LITIGATION -- 716-001 This course aims to provide insight into the procedural, substantive and tactical considerations in environmental litigation. The course will focus on two cases that have actually been litigated: one brought by federal EPA against a hazardous waste site owner and two waste generators under the Superfund law, and the defendants' third-party actions against multiple generators; and the other brought by a real estate developer against the Department of Defense under the "takings clause" in the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. In addition to learning the substantive law at issue in the cases, students will draft a complaint, draft written discovery, participate in a mock deposition, and draft and argue a motion. The course will focus on litigation skills and there are no prior course prerequisites.
