Course Catalog Description:
This course provides an introduction to US energy law. The first portion of the course introduces the nation's primary sources of energy: coal, oil, biofuels, natural gas, hydropower, nuclear, wind, solar, and geothermal energy. In doing so, it explores the physical, market, and legal structures within which these energy sources are extracted, transported, and converted into energy. The second portion of the course turns to the two major sectors of our energy economy--electricity and transportation--and the full range of federal and state regulation of each sector. The third portion of the course explores case studies of hot topics in energy law and policy that highlight the complex transitions taking place in the energy system. These topics include electric grid modernization, electric vehicles, risks and benefits associated with hydraulic fracturing and deepwater drilling for oil and gas, and the continued role of nuclear energy. In addition to traditional textbook reading and class discussion, the course will include industry, government, and nonprofit guest speaker presentations. Grading will be based on a final exam given at the end of the semester as well as class discussion and weekly written postings on the TWEN site for the course.

Course Catalog Description:
Law 7606 and 7608 provide credit for independent writing projects; the difference is that 7606 satisfies the J.D. upper division writing requirement, while 7608 does not (except on a case-by-case basis before fall 2016). The registrar will assign students to 7606 or 7608 based on whether the student seeks and the supervisor approves upper division writing credit. Students may earn 1 or 2 credits (and in exceptional circumstances 3 credits) for researching and writing a note, article, memo, or other paper on a legal topic. At least 3,750 words are required for one credit, at least 7,500 for two credits, and at least 11,250 for three credits. To register, the student should confer with a supervising faculty member, draft a description of the proposed project, and complete the online Independent Research form.
