LAW 2728 - Environmental Dispute Resolution

Dispute resolution arises in many contexts and forms in environmental law. This course will provide instruction in the professional skills necessary to resolve and prevent environmental disputes. Course work will include the study and practice of environmental negotiation, mediation and facilitation, and will provide an opportunity for students to develop these skills in a broad range of contexts including, among others, a two-party Clean Air Act environmental enforcement negotiation, a multi-party hazardous waste mediation, and a complex multi-stakeholder climate change consensus-building process involving local zoning law. Students will learn how to determine the appropriate environmental dispute resolution process for a given matter, deal with high conflict situations, and manage disparate factual and scientific information in a dispute. Students will leave the course with skills they can apply to a wide variety of environmental law practices and to other fields of law as well.
