THE INTERNATIONAL LAW OF FOOD INT7435

No required text for this course.

This course, one of the few if not the only in the world to address this critical subject matter, identifies and analyzes contemporary international legal and policy issues related to food including supply, safety, security, subsidies, and trade.  Students will master legal and structural analytical tools for addressing these increasingly important challenges of concern to all global citizens.

After completing this course, students will have a solid understanding of how to help vet the economics of renewable projects and get them permitted, financed, built, hooked-up to the grid and operational.

ENVIRONMENTAL GOVERNANCE AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR ENV5233

No required text for this course.

This class examines the push for more private sector accountability and governance in environmental matters (such as EDG and CSR policies) and how this relates to legal requirements.  The class also looks at private sector environmental governance.  In particular, the class will examine the concept of business sustainability drivers and practice, private environmental governance, including the growth of market models, and what legal standards apply.

ENVIRONMENTAL LITIGATION ENV5448

 

This class uses the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill to teach civil litigation through the lens of environmental law. Units on discovery, advanced evidence and civil procedure guides students through the pretrial and trial process.

FARMED ANIMAL LAW ENV5902

No required text for this course.

In the U.S., federal agencies that regulate meat, egg, and dairy production have comparatively little say over how farmed animals are bred, confined, or handled prior to slaughter.  Filling this void is a growing body of state and local farmed animal welfare laws, some of which are poised to transform industrial animal agriculture as we know it.  Recognizing this, a small handful of integrators, including Tyson, Cargill, JBS, and Smithfield, are promoting expansive, exclusive federal controls.
