Natural Resources Law and Science
The class will present an interdisciplinary overview of natural resources law and policy – which also explores the interaction between law and science – that is designed to accommodate law students, scientists, and other professionals. The course will focus on law and policy considerations relevant to land and ecosystem management, as well as management and conservation of biodiversity. The class will also consider the challenges inherent in integrating law, policy, and science to effectively protect and manage these resources. Finally, the course will highlight issues posed by both climate change and recent political change.
