Details: The concept of being “green”, and more particularly building green, has swept the country and spawned numerous Federal, State, and local laws which, in turn, have created new legal issues that attorneys need to be aware of and understand. This class provides a comprehensive review and analysis of the impact of buildings on the environment, the legal and public policy reasons for green buildings, an in depth discussion and analysis of the various rating standards and agencies that have been created and are commonly utilized to “rate” green buildings, legal issues related to the burgeoning concepts of “passive buildings” and “zero energy buildings,” Federal, State and New York City statutes related to green buildings, and contract, tort and other litigation claims that have arisen out of this new and rapidly developing area of law.
