This book provides a stimulating introduction to an area of law which is rapidly developing and is becoming more important within the UK legal system and EC and international law. It adopts a broad perspective in describing the present legal framework and in examining the evolution of the distinctive legal techniques of this subject.
This leading textbook has been revised to include new developments since 1994, including all the international case-law (ICJ, ITLOS, WTO, human rights, etc.) and new international legislation (genetically modified organisms, the Kyoto Protocol, oil pollution, chemicals, etc.). It is the most comprehensive account of the principles and rules relating to the protection of the environment and the conservation of natural resources. First Edition published by Manchester University Press: (2002) 0-719-04519-3
All solutions to environmental problems depend on the imposition of private, common, or public-property rights in natural resources. Who should own the resources: private individuals, private groups of "stakeholders", or the entire society (the public)? Contrary to much of the literature in this field, this book argues that no single property regime works best in all circumstances. Environmental protection requires the use of multiple property regimes--including admixtures of private, common, and public-property systems.
Land Law: Themes and Perspectives provides a collection of specially commissioned essays for students studying land law at undergraduate level. The book brings together leading authors, as well as some younger scholars, and explores land law from a variety of traditions within legal scholarship. The book contains chapters on topics essential to all land law courses, and seeks to question the boundaries of the discipline and to engage with wider debates about the role of land in society. The five parts of the book address separate themes within land law. The first part explores what is meant by 'property in land'. Part two sets land law in a historical perspective, from romanist ideas on land through to recent land law reforms. Part three explores the connections between land law and citizenship, with chapters on women's claims to property, adverse possession, mortgages, homelessness, indigenous peoples in Australia, and post-apartheid laws in South Africa. Part four discusses a range of policy issues from the family home to the increasing 'europeanization of land law'. The final part of the book explores land law from a more traditional, doctrinal perspective, opening with a chapter setting out the five keys to an understanding of land law. It will be invaluable reading for all undergraduate students of land law as well as postgraduate students and researchers working in the area.

The Marine Bill was designed to establish a new UK-wide strategic system of marine planning to balance conservation, energy and resource needs, based on the principle of sustainable development and working with the devolved administrations. The Committee reports here reservations about the framework nature of the draft Bill. It was felt that too much of its policy is contained in secondary legislation or guidance. That there are significant areas of confusion of responsibility - between UK and international, especially EU, obligations; between devolved administrations; and, the many agencies and other bodies who will be involved in delivering the proposals in the Bill.

The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice. The books are also an excellent resource for those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promotes clarity and ease of understanding. A Practical Approach to Environmental Law provides comprehensive coverage of the full range of law and legislation relating to the environment, including; The Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004; the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004; and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, written in a clear and user-friendly style. To ensure accessibility and ease of reference, the book is organised into three sections, focussing in turn on; the principles of environmental protection such as the polluter pays principle, the precautionary principle, and sustainable development; substantive environmental law areas (such as noise, waste and water); and practice and procedure. The practice and procedure section covers remedies available under civil law, with practical advice on case management, injunctions and compensation, and costs. It also covers criminal law offences, procedures for prosecuting, and sentencing guidelines. Very much a practical guide, A Practical Approach to Environmental Law makes extensive use of cross-referencing, examples, checklists, case studies, and key reference documents, to assist the practitioner in quickly locating the material they need, whilst also providing valuable context for the student coming to this complex subject for the first time.
