This seminar will examine selected issues in environmental law with an emphasis on their legal and policy implications through interactive case studies and role playing exercises and written assignments. We may address such diverse topics as greenhouse gas and other air emissions from power plants and other fossil fuel sources; administrative and judicial review of the environmental impacts of proposed major projects; legal remedies and defenses under common law and federal statutes for soil and water/groundwater contamination; and liability for pollution of the "waters of the United States". Through the role playing exercises and practice-oriented written assignments, students will gain a focused understanding of key federal environmental laws, regulations and policies and learn how practicing lawyers apply the law to a complex set of facts where there are no black and white answers. We will also discuss front page news developments in environmental law and policy. Because this is a seminar, active participation in discussion and in class exercises will count for a significant part of the final grade. Several written projects, collaborations and presentations will be required throughout the semester. There are no pre-requisites for this course. LIMITED WRITING REQUIREMENT OPTION: A limited number of students may be permitted to satisfy the upper-class writing requirement with the approval of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. GRADING NOTICE: This course does not offer the CR/NC/H option. ** A student who fails to attend the initial meeting of a seminar (designated by an (S) in the title), or to obtain permission to be absent from either the instructor or the Registrar, may be administratively dropped from the seminar.
