Carolina Law’s Center for Climate, Energy, Environment and Economics (CE3) has two interrelated missions. First, the center is expanding opportunities for Carolina Law students to develop a deep understanding of the critical energy and environmental challenges of the day through research, new courses, externship opportunities, moot court competitions and scholarships. Second, the center is informing public policy and private sector decision-making at the state and federal levels though non-partisan, objective analysis. We begin our projects by engaging stakeholders in government, business and communities to identify pressing energy and environmental issues. CE3 then utilizes students, UNC faculty and center staff to provide analysis and identify innovative legal responses.

"If facts are changing, law cannot be static."
