This seminar introduces students to natural resources law from a public interest perspective. Each week’s seminar will focus on a specific component of this area of the law with an emphasis on new and emerging issues.  Topics for discussion include fossil fuels, renewable energy, forests, land and protected areas, water, fisheries, endangered species, and minerals management as well as resource consumption issues. We also examine matters related to sustainability, environmental assessment and approvals, Aboriginal law, compliance, and enforcement.
