Rapid climate change is alarming, and it is easy to feel powerless in the face of the real dangers we face. The purpose of this course is to enable members of the public to have an informed impact on environmental regulation and policy. Knowledge of the environmental regulatory background is a powerful tool to utilize in decision-making and constructive action. We will start with some basics of environmental law including terminology, the court system, pollution statutes, and mechanisms for environmental regulation. A discussion of some case studies will bring the principles to life. You'll gain a basic understanding of environmental law in the United States and find out how you can use this understanding to engage in environmental decision-making. Olivia Deans holds a BS in biological sciences and law degree with an emphasis on environmental law. Her work experience involves legal research, outreach, and advocacy for a variety of stakeholders on matters of environmental law.
