Environmental Litigation: Law and Strategy, Second Edition

The scope of environmental litigation is huge, covering a complex array of federal and state statutes, common-law rules, and regulations. Moreover, litigation in the area is expanding at a tremendous pace due to evolving issues such as climate change litigation and an increasing number of Supreme Court decisions. This updated edition provides practical guidance on the most critical issues in environmental litigation from authors who represent a variety of professional settings, including academia, government, and private practice.

*ELS members, please note that the Annual Meeting is not being held in connection with the Michigan State Bar annual meeting this year.
