LAW 2826 - Energy, the Environment, and the Global Economy


This course explores substantive energy and environmental laws in a way that demonstrates their growing interdependence and internationalization in the emerging global marketplace. All lawyers practicing in the 21st century increasingly must be prepared to analyze domestic legal problems in an interdisciplinary, global context. The course examines the interrelationships of domestic energy and environmental laws on such energy topics as coal, oil, natural gas, electricity, nuclear power and nuclear waste, alternative energy sources, and such environmental topics as global warming, deforestation, and air and water pollution. It also addresses regional and global international law, including institutional structures, treaties, custom, state responsibility, sovereignty over resources, human rights and trade.

The course is taught using a combination of techniques, including lectures on the fundamental principles of energy law, environmental law and international law, and group discussion of specific case studies to demonstrate the integration of energy and the environment, the interrelationship of domestic and international laws and policies, and the interplay of economic principles and ethics.
