Climate and Energy: Law, Policy, and Management

This course examines legal, public policy and management issues related to Climate Change as well as those related to the development of renewable energy. It begins with an international overview of the social-economic forces shown to influence climate change, the legal and economic mechanisms that have emerged to address such change and the evolving global energy portfolio (particularly efforts to develop renewable energy). Current laws as well as evolving energy and climate change associated policies and regulations will be considered. Students participate in discussion of readings in the climate change and energy management literature, select and critically review an environmental or energy program from a climate change management perspective, and present their findings to the seminar.
