Condensing essential information into three issues a year, the Journal of Environmental Law has become an authoritative source of informed analysis for all those who have any dealings in this field of legal study. The Journal exists for both legal practitioners and academics but also proves accessible for other groups concerned with the environment including scientists to planners. It offers: major articles on a wide variety of topics, refereed and written to the highest standards, providing innovative and authoritative appraisals of current
and emerging concepts, policies and practice with a case law section covering a selection of English-language cases from recent months, the judgment is reproduced in full, and is followed by a detailed analysis. An annual European Case Law section providing full annotation of all cases on environmental issues emanating from the European Court of Justice. It also includes a substantial book reviews section and a materials section reproducing texts of recent legal, or quasi-legal, documents concerning the environment, such as European Directives and technical guidance texts.
