LAW 591 - Climate Change Law and Policy

Global climate change has emerged as the most significant environmental, if not societal, issue of our era. This seminar will explore cutting-edge public policy, legal, and scientific challenges involved in assessing and reducing the causes of climate change, and adapting to projected impacts.  The class will place an emphasis on U.S. policy with some focus on California‚Äôs climate policy leadership.  Students will have an opportunity to satisfy the S.A.W. requirement through a semester-long research paper, or may choose to be evaluated based on, inter alia, shorter analytical works.
