Environmental Law Review


Environmental law is a subject which, by the very nature of the subject matter, crosses many jurisdictions. Pollution across borders is an obvious example, but the assessment of environmental risk is a growing area for lawyers worldwide and again risks know no boundaries and can cross states and nations. Environmental Law Review has quickly established itself as a forum for critical discussion of current and developing ideas in environmental law. It maintains a dialogue between leading edge practitioners and academics in the fields of environmental law, environmental management and business. Whatever your professional interest, you will benefit from the analyses, criticisms and recommendations of colleagues and competitors published in Environmental Law Review. The journal keeps you in touch with current issues in UK law and policy, as well as crucial new developments in European and nternational law ensuring the you and your clients are operating within the law.
