Informative and instructional reference for environmental litigators and those with an interest in environmental law

This key environmental law text will provide the reader with a unique focus on leading judicial cases in major environmental law areas including climate change, the intersection of environmental and energy issues, aboriginal rights and the environment, energy facilities (pipeline regulatory decisions), environmental impact assessment, public inquiries and much more.  The chapter authors are the lawyers and legal professionals who were involved in the early stages of each case and throughout the course of the litigation which makes them especially qualified to comment on the material. In each chapter, the authors discuss the broader context of cases and litigation strategy that was used in the case under discussion.  This discussion is an informative and instructional reference for environmental litigators, regulatory lawyers, policy makers, environmental law professors and law students as they work in similar areas and on similar cases.
