Tulane Law School strives to create opportunities that enhance our students' practical skillsets in order to better prepare them for their jobs following law school. Through partnerships with local legal professionals, alumni, employers and law school faculty, Tulane Law works to supplement the classroom experience with programs such as Intersession "Boot Camp", externships, judicial clerkships and pro bono opportunities.

 
 
  
Environmental Enforcement

Course Description
This course is a theory of everything environmental. That is, it cuts across the body of the environmental media statutes and goes to the heart of the law -- enforcement. Permits and rules are mainly technical, and (except for rule-making litigation and legal transactions) enforcement is mostly where the lawyer reigns. So we will not focus so much on details of the media programs other than what happens after a violation. We'll cover such topics as EPA priorities, enforcement theories, overfiling, reporting, investigations, civil penalties, injunctions, citizen suits, audits, remediation and NRD remedies (optional), and even aspects of LEED litigation, qui tam, EJ, and white collar criminal prosecution. Classes will be lecture, case discussions, and problem solving from a text.  The course will be taught by Stan Millan with the Jones Walker Law Firm.  (2 credits)
