This course will cover the legal rules and processes that govern the human use, management, and protection of nature.  In this course, we will survey the history of resource acquisition and management, current mechanisms for the management, use, and preservation of natural resources, and competing ideas about how and why natural resources should be valued, used, and conserved.  (This course complements Environmental Law and Land Use Planning, but none is a prerequisite for the others.)  Each class will be a combination of lecture and interactive discussion.
