J.D. Course 454 | 2 credit hours
Water law is a field with an ancient pedigree, as well as one of increasing contemporary salience. While the fluid nature of the resource makes its legal control difficult, its environmental, economic, strategic, and cultural importance, along with growing competition over its use, make such regulation essential. Moreover, the unique legal norms worked out over time for water have led to the growth of an extensive theoretical literature around it.
