Climate Change Law & Policy
Last Updated Date:   14 December 2021

4 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
This course will explore legal and policy responses to global climate change. Special attention will be given to the evolution of the international climate change regime as well as the principles, provisions, and key features of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (1992), and subsequent protocols and agreements adopted thereunder. Although course readings and discussion will focus on existing and proposed responses to climate change, the overarching aim of the course will be to anticipate how the climate change problem will affect our laws and our lives in the long run.

Beyond the general significance of climate change to all of us, the course should be of special interest to those who intend to study and practice international law, environmental law, business law, or administrative law.
