This introductory course will explore fundamental legal and policy issues in environmental law. We will focus on challenges to using law to address threats to the environment and legal strategies to address environmental degradation, including the common law, “command-and-control” regulation, market-based instruments and information generation and disclosure. We will study many of the major federal environmental statutes - the National Environmental Policy Act, the Clean Air Act; the Clean Water Act; the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act. We will also introduce cross-cutting issues such as risk regulation, environmental federalism, and environmental enforcement.
