Environmental Law and Policy Colloquium

Future Offerings

Environmental Law and Policy Colloquium (8002): The Environmental Law & Policy Colloquium offers students the opportunity to learn about contemporary environmental law and policy matters. These matters include, among other areas, natural resources management, energy development, climate litigation, disaster and wildfire policy, sustainable finance, environmental geopolitics and diplomacy, ecocide and the environmental ramifications of war. The colloquium meets in two quarters. During the fall quarter classes meet weekly. In the Spring quarter, the class meets 4 times in weeks 2, 3, 4 and 9 and in addition, will have one Saturday workshop where students will present their capstone research papers. Over the course of these two quarters students will develop, write, and present a capstone research paper on a contemporary environmental law issue related to their home country and/or region. During the autumn quarter, students will begin to develop their capstone research papers by developing their proposals, outlines and literature reviews. During the spring quarter, the students will write and present their research papers. Across the two quarters we will also explore and discuss a diverse range of environmental law and policy matters through readings and class discussions. Over the course of the year, the Colloquium invites a number of guest speakers, including academics, practicing attorneys and diplomats. Some of the guest seminars take place during regular class hours and some outside of these class hours. Grading in this course is based on an analytical research paper, the capstone research paper (including the proposal, outline and literature review), presentation of the capstone research paper, and class participation. This course is required for students in the Environmental Law & Policy LL.M. Program.
