Environmental Law in Australia provides a clear and accessible discussion of the fundamental principles underpinning all environmental initiatives. The author explains how the involvement of the law adds value to the design and implementation of environmental policy, providing an impartial process for resolving conflicts about breaches of the law and environmental decision-making.
The eleventh edition has been fully revised and commentary, legislation and case law extensively updated throughout. The chapter structure has been refreshed for continuing relevance, and several chapters have been expanded, including those relating to climate change to cover impacted natural resources, waste to include principles of the circular economy and cultural heritage to include natural and European heritage.
The book is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students of law, environmental science, environmental management and the environmental economics disciplines. It enables readers to approach any environmental law, in any Australian jurisdiction, with a clear understanding of how it is intended to work and how it will be interpreted. It is also a valuable resource for lawyers, non-government organisations, public servants, corporate officers and other practitioners.
