Environmental and Natural Resources Law: Concepts and Context | 47xx
An introductory course to orient students in the broad cluster of fields of study in what we call Environmental and Natural Resources Law. Students will master an array of fundamental concepts that draw the field together (e.g, instrument choice, permitting and reporting, impact analysis, citizens enforcement and constitutional limitations). Students will learn about the diverse legal actors within the fields and the broad social and environmental contexts that shape transactions and controversies. Coursework will focus on student research assignments and presentations with introductory video lectures by the professor and guest professors. The course is available to MLS, LLM and JD students. The diversity of experience among class participants will enrich the learning environment.
