Overview

Using the proven Examples & Explanations format, this fully updated study guide is an invaluable supplement to any environmental law, energy law or land use course. Through liberal use of chapter cross referencing, Examples & Explanations: Environmental Law, Fourth Edition, helps students develop a deep and integrated understanding of the many areas in environmental law.

This outstanding study guide is unique in its coverage. Its highly regarded attributes include

  • comprehensive coverage of 20 areas of environmental, energy and land use law in 15 separate chapters that are integrated through extensive cross referencing, along with a glossary of scientific and environmental terms, a translated list of all acronyms, and a cross reference to coverage in other environmental case books
  • accessible and user-friendly structure with the text following the order of topics as they appear in most environmental law casebooks
  • detailed exploration of basic concepts, rules, acts, and agencies using the student-tested Examples & Explanations format
  • an approach that is especially useful for courses employing a problems and simulations model; lucid explanations draw the pieces together to give students a more complete understanding of the subject
  • in the Fourth Edition, there is more explanation of the environmental science, and an integration of scientific topics into the text at a level appropriate to law students
  • format allows the professor to bring students quickly up the learning curve and teach environmental material at a more advanced level, even in an introductory format. By providing a foundation in complex areas, professors can move on quickly to have students work on or solve the types of real-world legal issues that confront the profession today.
  • text can be used to help students find a paper topic: the student can choose a topic, then pick one of the identified legal controversies or splits in the circuits identified in the text and pursue that as an in-depth paper topic. This allows students to be more self-directing in pursuing their interests and facilitates more productive use of scarce class time.

Highlights of the Fourth Edition:

  • more scientific explanation of the various environmental and ecological cycles and the impact of human activities on them
  • new material on global warming issues and carbon trading
  • material in the text is cross referenced with material in the leading environmental law casebooks in an easy-to-use table at the front of the book
  • greater depth of coverage on key cases
  • new coverage of recent Supreme Court, federal appellate, and leading state law cases.
