Welcome to a most practical course. One built around an asynchronous classroom experience providing exposure to the legal resources and research techniques used in the practice of environmental, natural resources, and energy law.

There will be a strong emphasis on statutory law and the legislative process, and administrative law and the rulemaking process. During the course of the semester we will also explore current awareness tools, specialized information databases, advanced case law research, advanced database searching, science and statistical sources, cost-effective research strategies, international and foreign environmental law, and current and archived sources of government information.

The course is designed to complement other environmental, natural resources, and energy law courses and clinics, and to allow students to apply knowledge gained in this class to their research, clinical, journal, and work experiences.
