LAW 345 - Environmental Policy

Environmental Policy This course is offered by the Public Policy Program and offers limited enrollment to law students. Law students must receive professor permission to enroll. The course will explore policy making for environmental problems and will focus on issues that are local, national, and international. We will primarily focus on national environmental policy, and how that policy is implemented at a local and regional level. Issues we will explore will include water pollution policy and land-use in the Bay, U.S. Marine Mammal Policy, and U. S. Pollution Policy. For each of these issues, we will examine the U.S. laws and regulations as well as each agency's approach for quantitatively assessing the benefits and costs of environmental policy.
