Practicing Environmental Law

Todd Aagaard

Practicing Environmental Law brings the provocative challenges of environmental law practice into the classroom. The book covers the traditional subject matter of an environmental law course, but with an innovative practice-based approach. Each chapter is organized around a series of case study-style problems, which require students to address an environmental problem relying on a range of supporting materials. As students work through the book, they will develop an environmental justice advocacy strategy, decide whether to bring novel Clean Air Act litigation to address climate change, consider whether fireworks displays are point sources of water pollution, assess whether the Army Corps of Engineers must prepare an environmental impact statement for a new utility line, negotiate an enforcement settlement, and negotiate the contents of a landscape-scale habitat conservation plan—among many other exercises. In tackling these problems, students will review and use affidavits, administrative orders and guidance documents, biological opinions, white papers, letters, and other document types, in addition to many statutory and regulatory excerpts and court cases. In short, they will simulate the work that environmental attorneys actually do in practice. The casebook and the accompanying online self-assessment questions written by the authors teach the basics of environmental law and also help students gain deeper understanding of, and heightened enthusiasm for, a crucially important legal field.The new second edition of Practicing Environmental Law adds a short chapter on toxics regulation, updates the materials throughout the book to reflect recent legal developments, adds a new problem on using common law claims to address climate change, and streamlines and refines many of the existing problems.

Climate Justice

Randall S. Abate

Climate change is one of the most complex political, social, and environmental issues of this century, and climate change adaptation has become an increasingly large focus of global efforts. The international community's attention on adaptation has been primarily focused on developing countries' needs, with consensus that the world's most vulnerable communities—the urban and rural poor, low-lying island nations, and indigenous peoples—require additional protection. It was in response to this need for equity that "climate justice" emerged.Climate justice can be defined generally as addressing the disproportionate burden of climate change impacts on poor and marginalized communities. It seeks to promote more equitable allocation of the burdens of these impacts at the local, national, and global levels through proactive regulatory initiatives and reactive judicial remedies that draw on international human rights and domestic environmental justice theories. Yet, efforts to define climate justice as a field of inquiry can be elusive and underinclusive because the concept is so vast in scope.Climate Justice: Case Studies in Global and Regional Governance Challenges seeks to fill that void, providing an overview of the landscape of climate justice from a variety of legal and geographic perspectives in a case study format. Drawing on the expertise of 29 contributors from 16 countries, the book analyzes climate justice from an international law perspective and from the perspectives of legal responses to promote climate justice in several regions of the world, including Pacific island nations, South Asia, North America, Africa, and the Middle East. It addresses proposed solutions to a range of regulatory obstacles under international law, U.S. law, and foreign domestic law in seeking to promote climate justice on a global scale.

Effective Legal Writing

Douglas E. Abrams

"The English language knows only two types of writing—good writing and bad writing. Good legal writing is good writing about a legal subject." From this core proposition, this compact book provides lessons ideal for 1L Legal Research and Writing courses, upper class writing courses, and lawyers who wish to continue professional development. Leading judges and lawyers deliver many of the lessons.An early chapter covers the foundations of good legal writing, beginning with avid reading as well as professional commitment to the client's interests. Also covered are such foundations as identifying the intended audience, scheduling, outlining, orienting readers, and maintaining civility and professionalism.Later chapters concern researching, writing, editing, and dismantling barriers to effective writing. Topics include the consequences of inadequate research; the four fundamentals of good legal writing (conciseness, precision, simplicity, and clarity); and the roles of reason and passion in persuasive writing. Chapters on editing and proofreading stress the writer's need to restrain pride of authorship that would stiffen resistance to constructive pre-publication input. Chapters also treat three major barriers – misused jargon, acronyms, and footnotes.Chapters on versatility describe how lawyers, if their personal and professional circumstances permit, can fulfill professional responsibility and achieve personal satisfaction by writing in such diverse forums as newspaper editorial pages, law reviews, bar association journals, and blogs.
