Environmental Law in the Undergraduate Liberal Arts Curriculum: Strategies and Recommendations. Teaching Resource Bulletin No. 3.
The goal of this paper is to develop ways that the relationships among law, society, and the broader environment can be incorporated into the liberal arts curriculum through law and society courses. Based on personal experience, the four central problems of technique and content which confront the instructor when trying to introduce environmental law into a law and society course are discussed. The four problems are: (1) The liberal arts and law--where lies the balance? (2) Selecting a strategy; (3) What are the key concepts? and (4) Instructional strategies. The six key areas that should be a part of the instructor's syllabus are identified: they are philosophy, law creation, social control, pollution, solid and hazardous wastes, and accident and risk. A 52-item reference list of suggestions for further reading, organized into several subject areas, is put forth. (DB)
