Course Overview: Advanced Water Law & Policy is an intensive, graduate-level research and writing seminar whose topical focus varies from year to year. Our focus this year will be on the elaborate international and interstate body of laws that governs allocation and management of water from the Colorado River Basin within the United States and Mexico. This body of laws is colloquially referred to as the “Law of the River.” The seminar will explore the Law of the River’s historical evolution, existing doctrinal composition, and cutting-edge policy issues currently facing this body of laws. Graduate students from disciplines other than law are encouraged to enroll.
