The Sustainable Energy and Resources Law (SERL) program at TU Law offers an intensive curriculum focusing on energy, environmental, and natural resource law and policy. Legal and policy choices have far-reaching public health and economic consequences in today’s world. While each area has independent significance and importance, SERL’s primary focus is the nexus between energy and natural resources on one hand and the environment on the other. Accordingly, SERL is especially concerned with promoting laws and policies that encourage energy reliability, sustainable supplies of natural resources, and a healthy environment.
