Time: 6:00p-8:00p  M  Location: 209  BLB

Course Outline: The primary goal of this course will be to understand the principles of air quality law as set out in the Federal Clean Air Act and it’s implementing regulations. In addition to Federal statutory and administrative law, the course will focus on State and Local air quality requirements and the implementation of Federal air quality law through these State and Local requirements. Common law claims related to air pollution will also be discussed. Because EPA is in the process of developing additional climate change requirements through the Clean Air Act, the integration of climate change requirements under the Clean Air Act will also be a significant focus of this course.

In the last few years, a number of critical decisions by the executive branch and judiciary
have significantly altered the legal landscape of clean air regulatory programs.
Consequently, an updated casebook is not readily available. Consequently, materials will
be made available electronically, and I am currently working to get one of the law firms
that publish a basic Clean Air Act Handbook to provide copies for the class.
