About this book

Adopted at dozens of law schools, this book is a valuable resource for imparting practical skills. Authors Anderson and Hirsch have drawn on their wide experience as environmental law professors and practitioners to develop realistic exercises that teach the craft of environmental lawyering. Readers will learn how to bring a federal enforcement action against a polluter; negotiate a Superfund settlement; prepare documents and strategy for a citizen s suit; counsel a corporation on environmental compliance; navigate the issues that arise in government agency litigation (e.g. limits on discovery, standards of review); and comment on an EPA rule making, as well as many other relevant skills.

Updated and expanded, the third edition of "Environmental Law Practice" is comprehensive in scope. It contains problems and exercises under each of the major environmental statutes. In addition, it places readers in the three key roles played by environmental lawyers government attorney, corporate counsel, and public interest advocate and provides practice pointers for each of these types of work. The book makes extensive use of original documents such as statutes, the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), regulatory preambles, and agency guidance, exposing students to the materials that environmental lawyers use most.

This book covers the most significant areas of environmental practice: compliance, enforcement, litigation, and policy. It gives in-depth treatment of substantive environmental law areas such as the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, CERCLA, RCRA, EPCRA, and citizen suits. It incorporates current developments in environmental law, such as recent Supreme Court and circuit court cases. Of the many books on environmental law, Environmental Law Practice is one of the few to focus on environmental practice and not just the pure substantive doctrine.
