IC: What can students expect out of your class?
SJ: An overview of environmental law with an emphasis on some issues that have been in the news recently.
IC: What are you most excited about sharing with your students?
SJ: I like sharing the practical side of environmental law—looking at the issues from an “ideal” v. “financially feasible” perspective.
IC: What do you as the instructor learn from working with your students?
SJ: I enjoy learning about what students feel are the important environmental issues today. The “important issues” change over time, and I like to keep up-to-date on what students find are the most interesting and/or urgent problems that we are facing.
