Public utilities are providers of electricity, natural gas, water and telecommunications; essential services and foundations of our economy. Over many decades a complex, nuanced and often bulky set of laws and regulations have developed, iterated and evolved that apply just to public utilities, especially those providing energy services. Using a combination of lecture, experienced guest speakers, legal writing, student presentations, and group discussion, this course will expose students to this unique area of law, regulation and policies as well as the associated decision-making processes.
