Really great class. Covers all the main topics of environmental law. The Professor is very interesting, informative, and clear. A great introductory class for environmental topics in the legal realm.
Incredible course with an engaging professor who makes you want to learn more with every lesson.\n\nThe best course I saw on Coursera and exactly what I would appreciate in any course, online or not.

I do not have any connection in my nature of job and education to the law, but I found this course incredible informative, and it opened my eyes to the subject. It requires more attention to the material from non-professionals like me, but It all will be rewarded with a raised awareness to such law. Donald Hornstein is the best lecturer ever. The videos were informative, funny and bring interest to the subject. Thank you for developing this course and for allowing people from outside understand what is environmental law.

Although today in 2020, some of the topic have certainly changed, this was an enjoyable and challenging course. Instructor Donald Hornstein made me feel welcome, and excited about the topics. His enthusiasm was addictive, so I looked forward to each lecture. I also very much appreciated the clarity of his teaching, and the cases he chose to have us learn from, and the well-written briefs. There were more than a few typos in the transcripts, but overall an excellent course. I will look for more from Mr. Hornstein.

Excellent course!!!!! Not only was the professor's teaching style fun and engaging, he made environmental law exciting!!! I learned so very much. Although my current degree is in Environmental Management and I'm a Healthcare Sustainability Specialist for an International regulated medical waste disposal firm, the course inspired me so much, i'm actually considering going to Law School to specialize in Environmental Law!!!
Thank you so very much Prof. Bornstein & UNC staff for offering this amazing course!!!

Prof. Horstein was a great lecturer - he had a very structured approach and spoke to his audience, not just "at" his audience. I enjoyed the mini-quizes inside of the videos, and felt his lectures were the perfect length. I learned quite a bit in this course! I'm a trainee lawyer in the UK and have a Masters in international policy (political science) so this was a very good way for me to see if I'm genuinely interested in environmental law - which I am. Thanks!

Law does not have a reputation for being light reading, an interesting field full of personality and humor. Professor Hornstein defies that stereotype. I learned a great deal from this course, and actually looked forward to the lectures because of his good nature and lighthearted presentation of the material. For anyone who wants a basic introduction but may be hesitant about taking a law class, I highly recommend this one.

This is an outstanding course, and Professor Hornstein is an exceptional instructor. I am PhD environmental scientist with over 25 years' experience in academia and industry. What I learned in this course was the legal, economic and philosophical underpinnings of my career and my avocations. I am grateful to Professor Hornstein for sharing his depth of knowledge, his keen insight, and his advocacy for the environment.

While unfortunately dated at this point, Professor Hornstein's introduction course does an excellent job of outlining the principles underlying environmental law, both in the United States and internationally. Everyone with the ability to do so owes it to themselves, their community, and their planet to become familiar with the subject matter of this course, which is becoming more urgently relevant day by day.

Very informative ; But cases are only from the United nations of America,it will be better if the cases are given from other countries(World).Because,Environmental pollution is in the entire world in the present world. The government in USA has very good laws but it is not the same in other countries. we can learn from the cases.

As someone who has never taken a law class or endeavored into law in any way so far, I have learned SO MUCH in this course! I am very thankful that Professor Hornstein taught the class in a way that was accessible for layfolks like myself. I found the course to be fun and challenging at the right level to get me to really think and consider legal thought as it relates to conflict resolutions. I had so many answers about this field/topic before I began and they were almost all answered in the course. I feel more confident in my abilities to understand the various aspects of environmental law and policy. I definitely recommend!

The course is very lucid and highlights the multidisciplinary approach towards environmental law. I am extremely elated to share that enrolling in this course had been very fruitful since it has definitely changed my thought process and has added immensely to my knowledge of environmental law. I congratulate the University of North Carolina to have given us this opportunity of e-learning. I am also grateful to Prof. Donald who has explained every topic so well making it interesting with various case laws and totally comprehendible. The weekly quizzes were a great method of self-assessment. Thank You once again!

Professor Hornstein managed to create an entertaining yet meaningful course on Environmental Law and Policy, with the conceptual and fact-based explanations making it easy for anyone to understand. I also really appreciated the structure and organisation of the course. One pointer is that this course focuses mainly on cases and statutes in the United States, with few being from other countries or on the global scale. Nevertheless, you still learn a lot about environmental law in general.

It was really interesting, I liked the approach very much and the way the Professor explained everything. Our legislation in Colombia is basically a copy of the US legislation, so it is very important for me to understand why our environmental law is how it is, and in this aspect this course was so helpful. I would like it to be updated, since the reference of the GHG and the International Agreements have changed and the US has taken a different position with the Trump's Administration.

Absolutely love the professor. He is very clear and articulate. You also don't really need to do the readings if you're very good at listening. Or you don't need to watch the lectures if you're super good at law and policy and don't need any clarifications. He makes it fun and interesting. I also learned quite a lot. Love all the examples he gives. Great class I would definitely recommend for people trying to get a little introduction and background to environmental law.

It's an outstanding course! Professor Hornstein is an excellent teacher, even if just an introduction to environmental law, we get to study a lot of important topics in more than a simple introductory way. Also, the readings recommended every week are very pertinent to learn not only theory, but what happens in the practice of environmental law. I wish the would update this course, adding another module, as it has passed some time since it was recorded.

I love how the professor bring the course alive. Very suitable for beginner and definitely an interesting way of presentation. It also helps that the text for all the videos are broken down per few minutes to help focus to both audio and visual learners. Each course also doesn't take that long and reading assignment is reasonable and actually adding onto the existing story so it doesn't feel like a burden reading them. I want more of this.

It was a real honor taking this course and learning from Professor Hornstein who works hard into making each lesson absolutely remarkable. The topics exposed were very interesting and learning about them from someone who's passion is captivating, and who shows to have great wisdom in them is an amazing experience. I more than recommend this course to anyone looking to learn more about environmental law and what it consolidates.

Amazing course with such an awesome professor who even though being in a one-sided virtual class makes the students of this class feel as if they are actually present there and he takes so much efforts to make it interactive and a fun learning process by giving various out of the box hypotheticals and continuously makes the student work their brains to answer the questions. PS: Really loved his dress code for the lectures.

The professor has an immense amount of charisma and a concise way of breaking down concepts. The content material is short and to the point. These short lectures allow the student to even explore philosophies of economics in detail giving a big picture to what the issues at hand are with Law, Policy, and Climate Change.
Great lectures, materials, discussions, and extremely effective Professor. Highly recommend.

Wow it is been an interesting, fun and informative time spent with my most favorite professor in the world I had the privilege to learn from. Coming from a medical background with little knowledge of law and especially environmental law, Prof Don Hornstein simplified it and thus it reflected in my grade Looking forward to take any other course under him. Shout out to Prof and his team!

Professor Donald Hornstein is a wonderful teacher! He explains from the history of environmental law to the contemporary state with a view to the world legal regime. His insights at policy from Economics and Law from Statutes and Case law are delight to learn in fusion.
Although the course is set around in 2013-14, it has been great fun learning and has prepared me for future learning !

I loved this course! The professor is so enthusiastic and easy to follow, and I feel like I have the basic background knowledge that I need for my job now. It also helped me to interpret cases - I read the case (which he has condensed) each unit, tried to puzzle out what had happened, and then listened to his lecture to see if I got it right. Thank you Coursera and Professor Hornstein!!

Brilliant course, the content is interesting, challenging and well organised. Lessons are very easy to follow and a great effort was put in order to summarise all the cases. Every week you can learn something new and you really get the feeling that you have acquired a better understanding of basic Nord American Environmental case law (even if you are not familiar with law at all!).

Prof. Don Hornstein is great at introducing each and every concept related to environmental law and policy. I am a graduate student of Sustainable Infrastructure having no background in Law but I finished the course with 100% grade and learnt many aspects and terms of Law, specifically Environmental Law. I would like to thank Prof. Hornstein for the wonderful lectures.
