Environmental Assessment Law Course at University of Ottawa

February 1, 2012

Stephen Hazell is now teaching an environmental assessment law at the Faculty of Law at University of Ottawa for the winter term (January to April, 2012).

“This is the only course focusing on environmental assessment law currently on offer at any law school in Canada” says Hazell.  “Recent statements by the Prime Minister in Davos about regulatory review of oil and gas development, and the House of Commons review of federal environmental assessment law make this course especially timely.  My hope is that the course will encourage my students to elevate the debate about environmental assessment law as future lawyers, or in other careers they may pursue in the private, not-for-profit or government sectors.”

“The University of Ottawa Faculty of Law is truly the leader among Canadian universities teaching environmental and sustainability law with a distinguished faculty that includes Jamie Benidickson, Stewart Elgie, Nathalie Chalifour and Heather Mcleod-Kilmurray” said Hazell.  “The Faculty also houses an Ecojustice environmental law clinic, and the Centre for International Environmental Law and Global Sustainability.”
