US Environmental Law and Policy

This course surveys key domestic actors, institutions, and policy/legal regimes that have shaped historical and contemporary regulation of environmental issues in the United States.

Environmental Studies majors and minors can count this course or EV/PS274 toward the major, but not both. 1 unit.
