The book offers an introduction to energy law and policy both for students who seek to practice in the field and for those interested in better understanding this fascinating, critical area of law. It introduces the key jurisdictional actors that play differing roles in energy controversies and provides students with an understanding of the multi-jurisdictional approach to energy regulation pervasive in the United States. This book breaks away from the traditional approach of looking at energy resources one at a time to provide a more holistic view of the field. It accounts for the complex, interrelated energy systems that buttress society, while addressing the grand energy challenges faced today. The book contains cases, sample statutes and regulations, and pertinent excerpts from energy law and policy experts. These policy-oriented, often empirical materials offer the necessary building blocks for a public law course, particularly one that covers a rapidly transitioning field. The book is organized into three parts that introduce students to the fundamental aspects of the energy sector, energy law, and the most pressing energy topics of the 21st century.

This book offers an introduction to energy law and policy both for students who seek to practice in the field and for those interested in better understanding this fascinating, critical area of law. It introduces the key federal, state, and local government actors that play differing roles in energy controversies and unpacks the multi-jurisdictional approach to energy regulation pervasive in the United States. The book explores the laws and policies governing the extraction, use, and disposal of renewable and non-renewable energy resources and provides in-depth coverage of U.S. regulation of the two major energy systems--electricity and transportation. In doing so, this book breaks away from the traditional approach of looking at energy resources one at a time. Instead, it provides a more holistic view of the field, emphasizing the major themes that run through energy law--regulation of market power, federalism tensions, and the global transition toward cleaner energy. Energy Law and Policy contains cases, sample statutes and regulations, and pertinent excerpts from energy law and policy experts. These policy-oriented, often empirical materials offer the necessary building blocks for a public law course, particularly one that covers a rapidly transitioning field. The book is organized into three parts that introduce students to the fundamental aspects of the energy sector, energy law, and the most pressing energy topics of the 21st century. The second edition builds on the first edition in a variety of ways: Enhanced coverage of legal and policy issues surrounding energy extraction on federal public lands, including coal, oil, natural gas, wind, and solar; Updated coverage of state policy changes in the areas of rooftop solar, net metering, and renewable portfolio standards; In-depth coverage of new energy-related executive orders, regulations, and policy shifts since the start of the Trump Administration; Greater discussion of energy storage technologies, electric vehicles, electric grid modernization, and cyber-security; Additional coverage of nuclear energy issues, including state subsidies for existing nuclear plants, financial concerns over investments in new nuclear plants, and facility permitting; Excerpts of new Supreme Court and federal lower court decisions on contemporary electricity policy issues, including demand response, capacity procurements, and electric transmission line planning; New developments in state regulation of hydraulic fracturing technologies; and Coverage of recent disputes over controversial energy transportation projects such as oil pipelines, natural gas pipelines, and liquefied natural gas export facilities.

The international legal rules affecting renewable alternative energy resources are amongst the most important legal and environmental concerns of the near future. As traditional energy sources are depleted, new technologies are being developed to harness the potentials of wave, current and tidal energy, coastal wind power, offshore geothermal, polar energy resources and space-based solar collection. This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the legal rules governing the alternative energy resource potential of all international common? areas - the high seas, the polar zones (especially Antarctica) and outer space. In a detailed, but precisely analyzed text, the book also reviews the international environmental rules affecting exploration, exploitation and use of internationally situated energy resources, alongside resources located offshore under national jurisdictions. This is accompanied by a critical look at the connection between efforts to control greenhouse gases and the growing interest in non-polluting alternatives found in the international "commons?. The result is a work of unprecedented value for environmental and international law academics and practitioners, as well as those interested in environmental resource economics and politics.

This groundbreaking text both explains and provides legal solutions to interlocking problems of global energy poverty, environmental degradation, and injustice. The first segment examines the jurisprudential lineages of justice and law within Western, Islamic, Buddhist and Confucian traditions, and argues that law can and should offer answers to global problems of energy and poverty. The second segment explores the facts pertaining to energy poverty among the "other third" of the world, consisting of 1.3 to 2.5 billion peoples. It explains how the lack of access to basic clean and affordable energy results in the premature deaths of millions, primarily among women and children, and afflicts millions more through sickness and ill-health. The third and fourth segments explore the importance of energy justice within the internationally-accepted foundational legal norm of sustainable development. Finally, the book explores national model laws and how they offer blueprints for promoting global energy justice.

This casebook integrates a legal assessment of energy resources with economic and environmental issues, thereby encouraging thoughtful analysis of energy policy issues confronting the U.S. and the world. Historical and contemporary legal issues confronting a range of energy resources are surveyed, including water power, coal, oil and gas, electricity, and nuclear power. Particular attention is paid to the need to reduce consumption of imported oil by motor vehicles. The third edition of the book contains considerable material on problems presented by climate change, including legal issues confronting renewable power projects and various conservation measures. We believe that the material can be taught in many different variations, and we continue to teach it in a somewhat different order every time it is offered.

The eighth edition of this pioneering casebook continues its tradition of comprehensive coverage, with problems and exercises that allow students to hone skills as counselors, as litigators, and as policy advisors. At the same time, the casebook helps students understand how immigration and citizenship law illuminates essential aspects of constitutional and administrative law and plays a key role in current political debates. This new edition is leaner, with significant reworking, thinning, and updating of core chapters on admissions categories, admission procedures, and removability. It also reflects the latest developments in federal enforcement, as well as state and local measures for both immigration enforcement and the integration of unauthorized migrants. The casebook incorporates important recent doctrinal changes, while trimming overall length.
