Environmental health law uses federal environmental law and state public health law to address human health impacts resulting from exposure to physical, chemical, biological, and social factors in the environment. This seminar will cover a range of subject areas, including toxic torts, lead poisoning prevention, food protection, and pesticides. Public policy, and the role of government as policymaker and regulator, will be emphasized. Students will write a paper on a chosen topic and present their research to the class.
