Climate Change and the Law



2019 Summer Online - Term 1

About This Class

Climate change is the most profound social and environmental issue of the 21st century.  This course will integrate the emerging science and law of climate change along with economic and intergenerational equity aspects of the problem.  We will consider how existing federal laws such as the Clean Air Act and NEPA may be used to address climate change as well as how new more comprehensive laws may be fashioned.  Different policy instruments will be considered including carbon taxes and emissions trading.

Approved for JD credit.
