LAW 6234: Public Lands and Natural Resources

3 Credits

Public Lands and Natural Resources studies the expansive body of federal and state constitutional provisions, statutes, rules, customs, and processes that govern the ways individuals, corporations, and federal, state, and local governments interact with federal public lands, state lands, private lands, water, air, wildlife, minerals, and other natural resources. We will study: (1) the history and statutes of U.S. federal public lands, and the past and present conflicts governing those lands; (2) the laws and regulations governing national parks, national monuments, national forests, grazing lands, energy resources, wildlife, and other natural resources; and (3) ownership interests and rights relating to public and private lands and resources. The course will help students gain an appreciation of our relationship with the natural environmental from cultural, historical, and economic perspectives, in addition to a legal perspective.
