第1回Introduction to course and environmental laws: We will discuss and debate the "Tragedy of the Commons", the IUCN, and the CITES agreement.
第2回United States Endangered Species Act of 1973: We will discover how this law has had effects outside of the United States and will discuss whether it can serve as a model for future law in Japan.
第3回Shark Finning Laws: We will discuss the recent increase in laws prohibiting the "finning" style of fishing and what effects it may have on fisheries in Japan.
第4回Exclusive Economic Zones: We will discuss the establishment of EEZ's under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Seas and debate how it may effect marine endangered species.
第5回Wildlife conservation and Japanese food culture: We will discuss and debate the balance between preserving natural populations of animals versus preserving food culture and heritage.
第6回The whaling controversy: We will discuss the International Convention for Regulation of Whaling and its relation to conservation efforts.
第7回Pet tigers in the United States: We will discuss the phenomena of people in the United States keeping wild animals as pets and the relationship that behavior has on the conservation of wildlife.
第8回Ecotourism and Tiger Tourism in India: Students will learn the criteria for an "ecotour" and learn how to analyze whether a tour advertised to be in a natural area really qualifies as an "ecotour".
第9回Elephant Ivory and "canned hunting": We will discuss and debate the idea of using economic activity to fund wildlife conservation.
第10回Invasive animal species: We will discuss and debate the issue of invasive species of animals and the role they play in a world of increasing international trade.
