ENVS 285 – Environmental Law & Policy

If you are interested in the environment and want some perspective on where our environmental law and policy came from, how it works, where it has succeeded and failed, what the unresolved issues have been and which remain, where the emerging topics (e.g. climate, PFAS, Environmental Justice) may take us, and a sense of the past and present battlegrounds of environmental law, then Environmental Law and Policy is for you. This course is taught using the Socratic (highly interactive) method, includes a “brownfield” negotiation, and culminates in student run hearings in which you will prepare, present, and argue about issues from what is a “water” of the U.S. to recycling and reclamation to what is solid and hazardous waste?
