Course Description

Law-5763 Natural Resources & Environmental Law on Federal Lands: 3 hours

This course deals with what has been called "public land law." Therefore, it chronicles the competing claims to the resources contained on and in federally owned lands. Among these lands are our National Parks, National Forests, Wilderness Areas, Wildlife Refuges, and lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management. Much of the western United States is impacted by one or more of these land management systems. Among the resources of these lands are minerals, recreation, fish and wildlife, forage for grazing, water, wilderness, and timber. In examining the specific regimes developed to manage these lands and resources, special attention is given to two more general environmental laws: the national Environmental Policy Act and the Endangered Species Act, which govern federal actions throughout the United States. Certificates: Native American Law; Resources, Energy, And Environmental Law.
