Environmental Law

Law School Description

The explosion of environmental laws since the early 1970s has dramatically impacted business, government, and private individuals. The tentacles reach into almost all areas of law: from bankruptcy to tax, from land transactions to corporate structuring. This course introduces students to a smorgasbord of federal environmental laws, including endangered species, environmental impact statements, air and water pollution, and solid/hazardous waste control. This course provides the fundamentals for those interested in other environmental law courses, students pursuing environmental law careers, as well as students curious about this important field of law.
