An introduction for students with little or no legal background, to the role of law in environmental protection. It also explains how strategies from the fields of ethics, science, economics and politics can further an understanding of the proper form and content of environmental law itself.
This textbook provides a concise introduction for students with little or no legal background, to the role of law in environmental protection. It describes and explains law and legal systems, the concept of the environment, sources of environmental law and some of the techniques used in environmental law. Interdisciplinary in approach, the book explores some of the major connections between law and the disciplines of ethics, science, economics and politics. Environment and Law offers a greater understanding of international and national environmental law and has case-studies from all over the world, including examples from UK, US and Australian law.
