LGS 225 - Environmental Law and Policy

3 credit hours - Three hours weekly; one term.
Understand the practical balance between environmental laws, policies and societal values and how environmental protections are often a dynamic fusion of these factors. Learn the differences between environmental laws and policies and discuss and debate how applicable case laws, statutes, administrative agency rules and regulations impact national, state and local issues affecting the environment. Gain insight into how core legal principles interplay with policy considerations and case law coupled with local statutes form an interlacing framework of policies and legal protections that ultimately determine, influence and define the “environment” as we know it. Lab fee $5.
