Course Description:

Energy production necessarily involves the conversion of resources found in nature to meet human needs. Much of the growth of environmental law over the last forty five years has been in response to the impacts of energy development and production. Often this response has been in the form of regulations to limit the environmental externalities of the existing energy sector. More recently, environmental laws and policies have also sought to encourage the development of alternative energy technologies that offer to lessen environmental impacts over the long term.

This course combines environmental law, natural resources law, and energy regulation. It examines how these legal domains have influenced each other in the past and how they may co-evolve in the future. It aspires to prepare students who may be interested in practicing energy or environmental law and to provide them with a fuller awareness of economic considerations that condition practice in both fields.
