General Course Description:

Global climate change is emerging as the most significant environmental, if not societal, issue of our era.

It will be crucial for governments and businesses to adopt legal and regulatory efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the impacts of a changing climate. This seminar will explore cutting-edge public policy, legal, and scientific challenges involved in assessing and addressing the causes and impacts of climate change on our society.  The class will place an emphasis on the interrelationship between climate change regulation and energy policy.
