International Environmental Law: The Practitioner's Guide to the Laws of the Planet (Eds: Martella, R. & Grosko, J. B.) provides practitioners with a comprehensive and practical analytical framework for meeting this growing demand and placing practitioners in a position to advise clients, whether from law firms, in house, or within government and nongovernmental organizations.

  • Handling, Treatment, Transportation, and Disposal of Chemicals and Hazardous Materials
  • Waste and Site Remediation
  • Emergency Response
  • Protected Species
  • Natural Resource Management and Protection
  • Natural Resource Damages
