The Origins of Environmental Law

Wednesday, Dec 3, 2014

Register for any or all of the eight-part class on the Origins of Environmental Law: Regulation and Evolution, taught by Leon Billings and Thomas Jorling, the two senior majority and minority staff members who led the Senate environment subcommittee which developed the major environmental legislation of the 1970s including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Superfund Act. Over the course of a single decade, Congress enacted a series of environmental laws that defined the direction and character of environmental policy in the US and globally. Learn about the process that led to these seminal laws from the writers of the legislation themselves.
