Class Blog - All students will be added to the blog within a week so that you may post and comment on posts.
Text: Environmental Law: Conceptual & Functional Approach 2e (Aspen Casebook)
EPA Environmental Law Glossary, Abbreviations & Acronyms - HTML PDF (Environmental law is packed with acronyms. This is a good place to look them up.)
I reserve the right to add or subtract points based on class performance. We will use the Moodle forum for this class. (If that does not work well, I will set up a blog.) You should check this page the night before each class for any breaking news.
I will post specific assignments as we through the course. Most will be from the text, but we will also look at other materials. If you want to read ahead, the plan for the course is to go all the way through the book.
