Details of the Initiative
Environmental Law (a lecture for 3rd and 4th-year law students), renewed in April 2023, trains students to think about real social issues by connecting all the legal knowledge they have learned in law school to real social problems.
The realization of environmental public interest, which is the goal of environmental law, cannot be achieved from a single standpoint. People from various positions, such as governments, businesses, consumers, and citizens, must discuss and set goals to be achieved and play their respective roles in solving problems. As a policy method to accomplish this, we not only use regulatory mechanisms but also promote the provision of information to change the behavior of each actor.
Therefore, in our lectures, we identify the goals and targets of the SDGs, which are more than just “environmental protection,” learn about corporate social responsibility, and engage in debates targeting policy issues.
