Select Topics in Environmental and Natural Resources Law

Prerequisites: None

Exam Type: No Exam

In 2015, the largest government conference ever held met in Paris. Its subject was not war, sports, or finance. It addressed the environment – a topic that has become an increasing focus of international attention and concern. The reading group will consider the pressing environmental and natural resource issues of our time – from climate change to oceans, from wildlife to water. We will discuss how these problems are shaped science, money, and politics in both the United States and other countries as well as the role law plays (and could play) in crafting solutions to these most critical challenges.

Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: February 1, February 22, March 8, March 22, April 5, April 19.
