Description

Environmental law is a dynamic area where active parliaments and courts generate a complex and interconnected web of legislation and regulations. Particular challenges arise from government attempts to balance environmental issues and developmental imperatives. The Environmental Law Handbook, now in its sixth edition, clarifies the complexity of this law for a wide range of readers.

Building on previous editions under the editorship of Professor David Farrier and the Hon Paul Stein QC AM, our new editor, Dr Peter Williams from the Faculty of the Built Environment, UNSW, has overseen contributions from over 20 experts in environmental law including barristers, solicitors, academics and policy makers. These experts have worked through complex legislation and regulation to offer a clear account of environmental planning and protection in NSW. 

A handbook for practising lawyers and for students, the careful balance of clarification and detail makes the text widely useful. Planners, engineers and environmental scientists, as well as those involved in environmental or community causes, will find The Environmental Law Handbook a valuable resource.

Features
