Cool class: Environmental Law

The new and improved Environmental Law class (11:374:460) will help you gain skills for variety of careers.   Many environmental positions require background in the major environmental laws.  This class not only gives you such understanding but also teaches you to find a law, read a regulation, and write a citizen comment.

A 300 level law class will no longer be offered by any department
This class is being offered by Human Ecology’s new faculty member Dr. Cymie Payne, who has worked on California state climate change policy and coastal resource management in New England and California.  Her experience includes both government positions and private practice.    She specializes in international law and recently appeared in a proceeding before the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea on behalf of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.   

In addition, she has also taught in law schools and can provide insight into the application process and the job market.  On top of all this, she is also very down to earth and interested in teaching.
