LAW 5413 - International Environmental Law


Credit(s): 3
International Environmental Law is growing in both breadth and depth, as an increasing number of environmental issues are gaining an international focus, and environmental lawyers and policymakers are delving deeper into particular aspects of the field. This course will provide a comprehensive and comparative review of some of the most pressing global environmental law and policy issues, including but not limited to global consumption-population dynamics, economics and sustainable development, international organizations and non-state actors, international environmental lawmaking and treaty negotiations, the intersection of international trade and the environment, and climate change, global forestry, biodiversity, and ocean resources management. The course will facilitate discussion of a) the drivers of conflict in these areas; b) the institutional and political complexities of addressing these issues; and c) ways in which the global community can successfully resolve these issues through international environmental law. This course will count in the Global/Comparative/Civil Basket
