414 - Energy Law (3 hours)*
This course looks at the law and policy related to US energy sources (hydro, coal, petroleum, natural gas, nuclear, renewables) and energy uses (electric power, transportation, efficiency) -- integrating legal, historical, technical, economic and environmental analysis. The readings come primarily from an online wikibook prepared by the professor and students over a number of years, as well as various online materials. Grading is based on class participation (incuding as special participants for particular topics and work on group projects), an in-class presentation, and a final research paper.
* This course may be offered for 2 hours during some years.
