San Diego Journal of Climate and Energy Law

The San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law serves as a foundation for continued dialogue and development of the rapidly emerging legal issues related to climate change and energy. The journal delves into topics such as insurance claims related to climate change, law and economics associated with cap-and-trade greenhouse gas markets, new energy policy of the carbon-constrained world, legal implications of trans-border air and water pollution, and effects of climate change on endangered species law.

The first issue of the San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law was published December 2009. Beginning in 2015, San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law began transitioning from being a paper journal to an online journal.  You can now have access to our articles through USD's repository.  If you are still interested in receiving a paper version of the issue, please contact Joe Christensen, Inc., EBSCO, or the William S. Hein Co.
