LAWS 6625 Environmental Law: Natural Resource Remedies (Fall: 1 )

Course Description

The recent Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill has focused attention on both the potential and limitations of environmental law to achieve environmental restoration. This course explores issues around the development and defense of resource injury based claims from a practitioners’ perspective, with particular emphasis on how scientific positions are both developed, and challenged. The course will be primarily exercise based, including one requiring you to develop, implement, and then argue- in motions and at trial- an actual field study. Invited lecturers, including attorneys representing government and/or private interests, together with presentations by technical experts, will provide broadened perspective. Meets Mondays, once a week for seven sessions, beginning August 25, together with a two and one half hour weekend session (field study implementation), date TBD.
