This course is about international climate law examining both the current international legal frameworks and discussion of future scenarios. It will explore the legal, political and scientific challenges in addressing and responding to climate change. It will illustrate how international climate law interacts with national law including private sector involvement but its principal focus is not on domestic law regimes. Various market and non-market mechanisms will be examined including emission trading systems, carbon taxes, new technologies and renewable energy targets.
