*HLS 2974. State Energy Law

The course will require one short paper (3-4 pages) and one long paper about a topic of the student's choosing.

States play a leading role in forging our nation's energy policy.  State regulatory authority over in-state activities is pervasive, from resource extraction to utility ratemaking. This course offers an overview of core state functions, the legal questions they present, and the current policy debates and legal battles over the future of our energy sector.  Across all of these topics, we'll explore how state roles change over time, given federal action in this space, case law, and industry developments. Topics will include: regulation of electric utilities; pipeline and infrastructure siting; renewable energy development policies; oil and gas production; and, regional and multi-state energy partnerships.
