Frontier Issues in Environmental Law

About this Course

This seminar identifies cutting edge ecological problems and addresses the potential of science, legal regimes and public policy to tackle frontier (i.e., not yet fully discovered and appreciated) environmental concerns that threaten public welfare and the world's natural resources.  From the perspective of environmental science and law, and through various media and scholarly sources, students will seek out those frontier and under-discussed environmental concerns of most interest, and suggest how we might learn from existing legal and policy regimes to better deal with these concerns.
