Our global environmental problems need attention from almost all legal disciplines, including constitutional law, property law, natural resources regulation, and international and comparative law. This timely class presents core issues in environmental law – broadly construed -- based on cutting-edge research by faculty at the College of Law. The issues are: how environmental law can be grounded in water law (Glennon); environmental law's constraints and competing concerns within the context of international trade (Gantz); how migration of species is and can be regulated, with special reference to invasive species (Miller); the contested climate-change challenge, with a focus on the pressing question of which role our courts are and should be playing(Engel); the potential for constructive interaction between traditional land law and environmental law (Stavang).
