Product description

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 tenth edition has been fully revised and extensively updated for currency and relevance. A new chapter has been added on Aboriginal cultural heritage places and other chapters have been extensively rewritten or reworked to provide succinct authoritative coverage of key principles and issues. For the first time, several environmental law specialists have contributed to the publication to bring additional expert perspectives to the new edition.

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.
