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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ferrey (law, Suffolk U.) presents an introductory textbook to United States environmental law that seems directed towards beginning law school students. Arguing that the scientific background is a necessary component of any understanding of environmental law, he has incorporated scientific information as an integral part of the text. Covering issues, statutes, agency regulations, and court decisions throughout, the work is organized by broad subject matter, including chapters on air quality, water pollution, water use rights, hazardous and solid waste management, energy and power, endangered species, preservation of natural areas, constitutional issues, and international environmental law.
