Course Description:

This January term course meets Monday-Friday, January 12-16.

This course addresses regulation of toxic chemicals in the environment. It will include an introduction to foundational concepts of risk assessment and risk management, which seek to integrate the science on chemical risks with policy-making. The course will explore the principles of regulation of hazardous wastes and toxic substances under statutes such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA or “Superfund”) and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). While sharing some characteristics with air and water pollution laws, these laws present significant legal and policy questions of their own. They exert significant influence on domestic manufacturing and commercial activities and are a mainstay of current environmental law practice.
