This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI). Human-caused climate change is happening, and it is projected to accelerate at an unprecedented pace. As they attempt to adapt to climate change, governments and private entities face an array of legal and practical hurdles. In this class, multi-disciplinary student teams will study the science and law of climate change and the challenges presented by adaptation science and practice. Students will focus on approaches that integrate science, policy, law, and other fields. They will incorporate stakeholder and expert input, apply problem solving tools, and develop responsive solutions.

This class is open to all University of Michigan graduate and professional students.
