This course examines the growing environmental control provided by the private sector in reaction to social pressure and how that is shaped by laws around information disclosure. To set the stage the course will also examine the market bases of environmental regulation and how the private sector also has governance structures of its own. Students will examine 1) the economic and theoretical bases for environmental laws; 2) emerging corporate and private sector behavior in response to these laws, financial disclosure laws, and public opinion; and 3) private environmental governance.
Prof. Victor Flatt is a Visiting Professor of Law and the Distinguished Visiting Fellow for the Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law. He is a nationally recognized expert on environmental law, climate law, and energy law, and the intersection of these areas.
