Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course introduces students to the regulatory regime developed in the United States to address environmental problems. Although the course will touch on common law approaches, the primary focus will be on key concepts and issues in the design, implementation and enforcement of the major environmental statutes. The majority of class time will be devoted to the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act; the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Recovery Act ("Superfund"), and the Safe Drinking Water Act. The National Environmental Policy Act will receive more limited coverage. This is a hands-on course and the course materials include edited Federal Register preambles, copies of permits and actual court filings along with edited cases and selected statutory and regulatory provisions. These materials allow students to see the process by environmental law is made and enforced--and to become familiar with the materials they would work with if their subsequent practice involves environmental law. As part of their preparation for some classes, students will be expected to work through problems that involve application of course materials to actual or hypothetical situations. These exercises will serve as the basis for class discussion. This core course is a prerequisite for advanced environmental law offerings such as the Advanced Environmental Law and Practice course.
