Original Faculty Photo.WhBlJames Coleman is an assistant professor at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Law and Haskayne School of Business. His scholarship addresses regulation of North American energy companies, focusing on how countries account for and influence regulation in their trading partners. Professor Coleman teaches courses in energy, business, and administrative law, including International Energy Development, Canadian Energy Management and Regulation and Regulatory Theory and the Law.

Professor Coleman has written on regulation of imported fuel and electricity that is based on how it was produced elsewhere, a mode of regulation that is becoming increasingly common in many forms including low carbon fuel standards and environmental impact assessments of energy transport projects. A related strand of his research examines how countries may encourage climate action in other countries without provoking trade wars, exploring innovative options such as environmental matching commitments. Finally, Professor Coleman analyzes how global energy companies respond to competing pressures from investors and regulators in multiple jurisdictions employing different corporate law standards. Professor Coleman has an article forthcoming in the Fordham Law Review, titled “Importing Energy, Exporting Regulation.” His most recently published piece, titled “Unilateral Climate Regulation,” appeared in the Harvard Environmental Law Review.

Professor Coleman comes to Calgary from Harvard Law School where he served on the faculty as a Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University in Biology, magna cum laude with highest honors in field, and his J.D. from Harvard Law School, cum laude. After law school, Professor Coleman clerked for the Honorable Steven M. Colloton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and practiced energy, environmental, and appellate law at Sidley Austin LLP in Washington D.C.
