Berkeley Law offers a sequence of courses related to energy law, regulation, and policy. This course is intended to provide interested students with an introductory exposure to energy law and policy and to many of the professional paths available for those interested in energy law. Topics that may be covered during the course are an overview of energy sources, climate change and decarbonization goals and how policies like clean energy standards help achieve those goals, the role the government, utilities, and other stakeholders play, and considerations for a just and equitable clean energy transition. There will be a required written paper and no final exam.
