Climate law

This course concerns the issues of law that are involved in the regulation of human relations and behaviours in context of climate system. Most of the course concerns international law and European Union law but a consiberable amount of national law is studied as well. It begins with an overview of the causes and effects of global climate change. The focus will then turn to the goal, areas and mechanisms, negotiation, implementation and current status of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Kyoto Protocol and Paris Agreement.

Students are expected to develop the aforementioned key anchor points of legal resources in each of the three areas covered: emission reduction, carbon sequestration by sinks and adaptation to climate anomalies and dealing with catastrophes.

We will then examine the past and proposed direct actions of European Union, especially in EU ETS and non-ETS areas and indirect action in energy, transport and building sector. The third part of course deals with legislation of Republic of Poland. It focus on Parliament outcomes, the executive branch and the courts, as well as regional, state and municipal efforts. The Environmental Protection Act, the Emission Trading Scheme Act, the Emission Management Act, the Act on Forest and relevant energy laws will receive special attention. We will evaluate the various legal tools that are available to address climate issues. Cap-and-trade scheme, command-and-control regulation, green and white certificate schemes, taxation, litigation, information disclosure, and voluntary action, CSR will be discussed. The course tackles both long-standing concerns and current controversies.
