This is an introductory survey class in environmental law. Topics include the control of air and water pollution, toxic substances and hazardous waste, global climate change, brownfields development, the intersection between energy law and policy and environmental law, protection of endangered species, and judicial review of federal and state administrative actions. We will also study one or more current examples of environmental law in action to illustrate the differing interests of various stakeholders in environmental law disputes. Administrative Law is recommended but not required as a prerequisite. GRADING NOTICE: This class does not offer the CR/NC/H option
