ADR6413.Ahttp://portal.vermontlaw.edu/Metacatalogs/Lists/Classes/DispForm.aspx?ID=169ADR6413.AMediation AdvocacyCostantino, CathyThis intensive seminar will meet for three consecutive days over one weekend. The seminar will specifically be focused on Mediation Advocacy, not Mediation. Students will be introduced (through lecture, the text, and class discussions) to the theory, principles and concepts of how to be an effective advocate in both the formal and informal mediation setting. More importantly, students will be given multiple opportunities to practice mediation advocacy skills through a variety of simulations and group exercises. Students will receive feedback from three sources: self, peers and the professor. Topics to be covered include: the Process, the Players, the Set-Up, the Prep, the Pitch, the Search, the Money, the Other Stuff, the Good, the Bad, the Ugly, the Impasse, the Walk-Away, the Nibble, the Deal, and the Close. The implications of law and policy for mediation advocates will also be discussed.

CLI9302.Ahttp://portal.vermontlaw.edu/Metacatalogs/Lists/Classes/DispForm.aspx?ID=356CLI9302.AEnvironmental and Natural Resources Law ClinicDoug RuleyThe Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic offers students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of environmental law, develop their professional skills, and acquire valuable work experience by advocating in national, regional, and local environmental matters. Our hard-hitting cases develop the next generation of environmental leaders and advocates. Summer student clinicians work directly with leading conservation organizations in New England and throughout the country, and with local community groups, representing these clients in litigation, administrative appeals, and other proceedings. Students sharpen their litigation and advocacy skills; develop claims, strategies, and arguments from the ground up; and practice effective communication with clients, courts, agencies, experts, and opposing parties. Students also explore the ethical aspects of practicing law and evaluate alternative approaches to resolving environmental conflicts. The clinic's collegial atmosphere provides ample opportunity for interaction and feedback among students and faculty, including weekly strategy sessions. Summer students work approximately 40 hours per week for eleven weeks, and may earn up to nine credits toward their JD, LLM, MELP, or MERL degrees. The clinic is available to non-VLS students on a space available basis, and we welcome inquiries and applications from students at other law schools. For more information, please contact Associate Director Laura Murphy at lmurphy@vermontlaw.edu. 9.00000000000000GP0|#7c52fb27-9205-46f7-bee7-5b3671723ee3;L0|#07c52fb27-9205-46f7-bee7-5b3671723ee3|2014 Summer - 8 Week Courses;GTSet|#ff5002fa-8399-4824-8dd4-231cdb4e3288;GPP|#938af55b-fbb1-40e4-b7f1-59a1714ca81b356

DIV7628.Ahttp://portal.vermontlaw.edu/Metacatalogs/Lists/Classes/DispForm.aspx?ID=151DIV7628.AIndian Tribes as Governmental Stewards of the EnvironmentBlumm,MichaelThis course examines the unique body of law governing “Indian country,” the geographic areas recognized by the federal government as the homelands of sovereign American Indian tribes. Major topics include the history of federal-tribal relations, tribal property rights, tribal court systems, and the balance of governmental power between tribes, states, and the federal government. Particular attention will be devoted to understanding the legal framework that supports the tribes’ role as governmental steward of the natural world, including powers derived from the tribes’ inherent sovereignty authority and rights stemming from treaties and federal statutes. The course will include a close examination of treaty-based fishing rights and federal environmental statutes that accord tribes a role as governmental partners in the implementation of federal environmental programs (for example, the Clean Water Act).

It compares and contrasts the major environmental statutes, such as the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, Toxic Substances Control Act, and other federal statutes. It considers the goals and objectives of environmental laws, and the choices that are made both implicitly and explicitly in effecting the means of environmental protection. In addition, the course explores state roles in biodiversity protection and land use regulation. A thread throughout the course asks questions about how environmental justice issues have or have not been taken into account.GP0|#3c0b6a0f-5f70-45c5-95af-0c37fe09aa99;L0|#03c0b6a0f-5f70-45c5-95af-0c37fe09aa99|2014 Summer - Term 1;GTSet|#ff5002fa-8399-4824-8dd4-231cdb4e3288;GPP|#938af55b-fbb1-40e4-b7f1-59a1714ca81b9 AM - Noon145

In asking this question, the class connects the discussion of energy and technology with long-standing notions of virtue, utility, happiness, welfare, freedom, distributive justice, and procedural justice. To give a pragmatic structure to this inquiry (and to show why this question matters), the class is divided into four parts: (1) understanding the global energy system and the injustices currently associated with it; (2) exploring justice theory and what it can offer when applied to energy problems; (3) examining policy mechanisms and tools that promote energy justice; and (4) analyzing case studies around the world of where communities or countries have made remarkable gains promoting energy justice. ​GP0|#c9d2e10b-a965-48fa-a702-220e14b6f336;L0|#0c9d2e10b-a965-48fa-a702-220e14b6f336|2014 Summer - Term 3;GTSet|#ff5002fa-8399-4824-8dd4-231cdb4e3288;GPP|#938af55b-fbb1-40e4-b7f1-59a1714ca81b1 PM - 4 PM149

While a good deal of time will be spent on farm safety nets, conservation, and nutrition policies, this course will demonstrate the depth that a modern farm bill reaches with impacts on private working lands and consumers. International trade, clean energy, forestry, rural development, and overall food policies will be reviewed. One goal will be to leave students with the insight that a farm bill is much more than just farm subsidies and low-income nutrition support.

As a foundation for studying the laws that govern the marine environment, the course considers the natural components of estuarine, coastal, and marine ecosystems and the current conservation issues confronting them. We will review domestic and international laws and treaties relating to coastal management, pollution, protected areas, endangered species, fisheries, marine mammals, wetlands, marine spatial planning, and offshore energy resources, and examine alternative approaches to ensure the conservation and sustainable use of marine resources. The course considers the effectiveness of these legal regimes in providing rational and comprehensive management and protection of marine resources in the face of emerging threats from climate change, crashing fish stocks, and energy shortages, focusing on current events such as the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the International Whaling Commission debate over commercial whaling, and climate change threats to the Arctic.GP0|#3c0b6a0f-5f70-45c5-95af-0c37fe09aa99;L0|#03c0b6a0f-5f70-45c5-95af-0c37fe09aa99|2014 Summer - Term 1;GTSet|#ff5002fa-8399-4824-8dd4-231cdb4e3288;GPP|#938af55b-fbb1-40e4-b7f1-59a1714ca81b9 AM - NoonSutton,MikeEichenberg,Tim159
