Law, Sustainability & Development

Course Description
This course will be jointly offered to students in the School of Law and International Development graduate students enrolled in Payson Center degree programs. The course will ask students to explore three central questions: (1) how can and do law and regulation promote -- or hinder -- sustainable development; (2) to what extent are national development goals at odds with sustainability goals and (3) can sustainable development law and regulation promote a more just, equitable society? Students will consider the meaning and interpretation of the term “sustainable development” through various lenses – e.g., trade and the environment, human rights, property rights. The materials and assignments will be organized around a case study involving articulation of a protected area and biodiversity regulation in a rapidly urbanizing area in a less-developed country in the Americas. This course is not graded anonymously. The grade in this course will be based 80% on written work and 20% on an oral presentation. Of the 80% written work, 60% will be done as part of a team. (3 credits)
