Clean Air Act Seminar

  • Typically offered every other year
Description: In this seminar we will study key portions of the Clean Air Act with an emphasis on the practical application of the statute and implementing regulations. The class will also examine the law affecting greenhouse gas regulations as that develops during the course of the semester.

Although the course will touch on significant court decisions, the major focus will be on the way that EPA has translated the statute into rules and the way in which that translation has changed over time. Each class will involve some lecture and discussion time as well as a segment where we work through practical issues related to the portion of the Clean Air Act under review.

Attendance is mandatory and students will be graded based on weekly assignments and classroom participation.
