International Climate Change Law



2021 Fall Residential

About This Class

This 3-credit hybrid classroom/experiential course demystifies the international climate treaty regime through critique of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Kyoto Protocol, and the Paris Agreement. Sitting at the intersection of science, law and practice, the course provides an opportunity to support a small island client as it prepares and responds to the COP26 ocean-climate dialogue. Student delegates will contribute to the development of international climate policy and inform the ongoing process of building out a framework for operationalizing ocean commitments under the Paris Agreement.
