This new title in the popular Text, Cases, and Materials series provides students with a deep understanding of environmental law while also encouraging critical reflection and pointing out areas of controversy and debate. The authors present an impressive range of extracts from UK, EU, and international cases, legislation, and articles, to help support learning and demonstrate both how the law works in practice and how it should or could work, clearly
guiding students through key areas while providing insightful explanations and analysis.
Topics have been carefully selected to support a wide range of environmental law courses, within law school and beyond. These include pollution control, nature conservation, climate change regulation, town planning, and water regulation, all incorporating aspects of law from local, UK, EU and international legal cultures.
With its unique combination of extracts and author discussion, this new text provides a wide-ranging, stimulating and fresh approach to environmental law, which can be relied upon throughout your course and career.
This book is also accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which features updates to the law, further reading suggestions and useful weblinks.
