Environmental Law I Andreen July 30, 2015





Professor William Andreen                                     Fall Semester 2015


Brief Description:


Environmental Law is a thriving and dynamic area of law practice. As going “green” becomes a priority, lawyers who can advise clients on green initiatives and traditional environmental law are in demand. This course provides a basic grounding in many of the primary areas of environmental practice:  water pollution control; air pollution control; climate change; enforcement; citizen suits; judicial review; statutory interpretation; protection of endangered species; and environmental assessment. We will also briefly survey the law of hazardous waste regulation and Superfund (CERCLA).
