Natural Resources Law and Policy

Future Offerings

Natural Resources Law and Policy (2506): Natural resource management presents extremely difficult and contentious issues of law and public policy. Major debates continue to rage over issues such as the Endangered Species Act, whether the United States should permit drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, how to ensure equitable allocation of key resources such as water and energy, and how to prevent the overfishing of the oceans. This course is a survey course and will look at the National Environmental Protection Act (and environmental impact statements), wildlife protection, marine and fisheries management, water, energy, and public lands. Class sessions will include critical examinations of current law and policy and in-depth discussions of situational case studies that force you to consider how you would resolve real-life issues. Students will be expected to participate actively in class discussions. (Because this is a survey class, students interested in an in-depth understanding of water or energy issues should consider classes offered at the Law School specific to those subjects.) Elements used in grading: Class participation and final exam (open book).
