Primary Instructor:

Introduces students to environmental law and the impact of the legal process on decisions that affect the environment — decisions by individuals, corporations and the government. Topics include common law torts such as nuisance, toxic torts, climate change, statutes that regulate pollution and other environmentally harmful activities, the public trust doctrine, and regulatory "takings." We also talk about constitutional law and administrative law as they relate to environmental regulation. Students learn about environmental law by studying court decisions and statutes, watching An Inconvenient Truth and A Civil Action, listening to guest lecturers and taking at least one field trip.
