Environmental Law

The Environmental Law Course of Study guides students in selecting a set of courses that provide the substantive foundation for Environmental Law practice.  In addition to studying major federal environmental laws, students will develop a solid grounding in the principles of Administrative Law, which governs the procedures that environmental agencies follow.  These courses also provide necessary background knowledge in key constitutional doctrines, such as takings, standing, and rules governing separation of powers. Students also can delve more deeply into several specific subjects in small classes and develop an appreciation for the policy choices and regulatory instruments used in the field.  Students who want to see how Environmental Law is practiced may take advantage of an experiential-learning opportunity, such as an externship with environmental groups or public agencies, or participation on the National Environmental Moot Court Team or the Environmental Negotiation Team.
