International Environmental Law Seminar - LAW 763

1-3 Hours

This seminar explores a number of ways the world community has tried — with varying degrees of success — to protect the global environment. While the seminar addresses some traditional aspects of international environmental law, most of the attention is on a number of recently emerging issues — many of which concerned the world community when it gathered at the Earth Summit (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro. Global warming, ozone depletion, sustainable development, tropical deforestation, the protection of the global commons, biodiversity, population growth, the greening of the WTO, the future of the U.N. Environment Programme, and the environmental policies of the European Union are considered.
