Overview

This new casebook takes a distinctive place-based approach to convey the passion and drama lurking behind resource disputes and policy. Natural Resources Law: A Place-Based Book of Cases and Problems uses the same statutory interpretations and standards of review that other books treat as dry but necessary pieces of information, but brings them to life.

The casebook can enliven your course through its:

  • broad, national coverage that goes beyond traditional public lands issues to address a wide array of topics of interest to both eastern and western students
  • place-based approach, which introduces most cases with a photo or map of the location under discussion along with a context-setting paragraph. The authors capture the love-of-place shared by most professors in the field; traditional resource users such as ranchers, miners, and loggers; and modern recreational users.
  • skillful use of factually rich discussion problems, which introduce each group of cases. Many of these problems mirror traditional essay exam questions, while others raise contemporary policy issues.

The book includes a balanced selection of foundational cases and new decisions:

  • Utah Association of Counties v. Bush on Utah's Grand Staircase National Monument
  • South Florida Water Management District v. Miccosukee Tribe of Indians on the Florida Everglades
  • Mineral Policy Center v. Norton on administrative mining reform
  • Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, Inc. v. Rivenburgh on Kentucky mountaintop mining
  • Okanogan v. National Marine Fishery Service and Rio Grande Silvery Minnow v. Keys on ESA/water rights conflict
  • Conti v. United States on Atlantic swordfishing permit
  • Mobil Oil Exploration& Producing, Southeast, Inc. v. United States on North Carolina's Outer Banks

The authors offer extra support for instructors:

  • readings are grouped into discrete, assignment-sized chunks, allowing coverage of two to four cases or one problem during each class section
  • emphasis is on primary sources, with relevant statutory and regulatory sections at the beginning of each chapter
  • detailed Teacher's Manual answers all questions asked in the text
  • a website and a CD-ROM provide PowerPoint slide and color versions of the photos in the casebook as well as photos of additional places
  • a listserv alerts adopters to new materials available online, including edited versions of new judicial opinions as they are handed down
