The UNC School of Law Center for Climate, Energy, Environment and Economics (CE3) exists to provide advanced student education and policy and legal examination of issues surrounding the law of climate, energy, environment, and economic development, with particular attention to the intersection of these issues. Addressing this intersection requires engaging in 1) the holistic needs of communities, 2) the role of innovative technologies, finance, and the private sector in protecting our environment and providing for development, and 3) protecting the environment and climate systems upon which humanity relies.
CE3 is tasked with engaging stakeholders in government, business and communities to identify concerns and address these concerns through discussions with thought leaders and decision makers from the current energy, environment, climate and economic development fields. CE3 uses student resources to provide innovative legal responses to these intersecting areas. The goal is to assist in molding future energy, environment, climate and development policies by understanding how they work together and affect the welfare of the public, and doing so while providing unique educational experiences for Carolina Law students.
