LAW 307 - Global Environmental Governance: Law, Economics and Policy.


This course examines challenges to the integrity and well-being of the global environment. Its approach is primarily legal, drawing from international law, but also incorporating perspectives from economics, philosophy, and ecology. The class begins by setting out core legal principles. It then moves though a series of case studies, that include climate change; trade and globalization; biodiversity and intellectual property; deforestation and poverty; marine resources; environment and war; and transboundary movement of hazardous substances.  Assessment is by thought-piece research paper and every student teaching a specific case-study. Three hours. Drumbl, Mark
