Climate Change and the Law (LAW-851-001)
There are no notices at this time.
This course examines the most important environmental issue of our day. It focuses on the science of climate change, the U.S. domestic response, and international efforts to curb greenhouse pollution. While knowledge of environmental law is not mandatory as a prerequisite, statutory and administrative interpretation of various U.S. laws will be a central component of the course. The class will also include various simulations, including multilateral negotiations and federal moot courts. Finally, the course will consider whether and to what extent global warming represents a threat to our current social fabric, and will analyze potential solutions or mitigation devices available to lawyers and other policy-makers.
