effective teaching and study aids including charts and diagrams that map the structure of each major environmental statute, problems and questions based on real—life situations, and "pathfinders" to explain where to locate crucial source materials

a website (http://www.law.umaryland.edu/courses/environment) that continually updates subjects covered in the book with links that enable students to learn more about topics of interest

detailed suggestions for teaching from the book provided in an extensive Teacher's Manual
