Energy Law and the Environment

Front Cover
CRC Press, 2002 M02 7 - 288 pages
The area of law concerning energy and the environment is a dynamic one. Decisions are constantly being made at all levels, from international summits to local courts of law, which then filter down and affect law-makers, law students and ultimately members of the public. Energy Law and the Environment is the first book to consider the interrelationship between energy law and the legal environmental imperatives for the industrial sector including current issues and future developments.
This is not a book solely for academics - it has been written to be accessible to both lawyers and non-lawyers alike. The importance of the subject matter and its place in the context of the sustainable development of the energy sector, which underpins all economic development, should make it essential reading for both those working in the energy sectors and those concerned with the effects that the sector has on the global environment. It can also be used as a text for courses at undergraduate and graduate level on both energy law and environmental law.
