Overview

The authors' focus on policy and theory, rather than the minutia of environmental law, gives students the analytical tools they need to examine any given law or statute.

This comprehensive policy-oriented casebook covers all the essential topics you'll want to address in class. It begins with a theoretical overview, introducing key environmental problems. The second chapter presents different problem-solving approaches: economic analysis, cost-benefit analysis, and the pursuit of social goals other than efficient resource allocation.

Other chapters address: the role of common law, the regulation of hazardous waste, the administrative law doctrines that govern environmental law, NEPA, natural resources, and the future of environmental law and policy. The authors' approach is analytical and balanced, offering the full range of theoretical perspectives that affect current and future laws and statutes: public policy analysis

• the integration of law, science, and policy
• the philosophical foundations of environmental law
• the political dimensions of environmental law and policy

Professors Menell and Stewart also pay careful attention to pedagogy. Each chapter is divided into units that can be taught in one class session and includes lively problems to spark classroom discussion.
