About This Title
This title is a research guide for librarians, practitioners, professors, and anyone whose research interests involve environmental law. It introduces the reader to the sources of primary and secondary authority with enough information to discern the importance of each resource. The researcher is introduced to major environmental acts passed by Congress as well as regulations and case law at both the state and federal levels. Secondary sources are essential due to the number and complexity of primary sources involved, especially with respect to regulation; the list of treatises and practice guides include a description of each. Another section covers subscription databases as well as free websites. Finally, the section on international environmental law contains information on relevant treaties and agreements and the sources that contain them.
