Environmental law is a dynamic area where active parliaments and courts generate a complex and interconnected web of legislation and regulation. Particular challenges arise from government attempts to balance environmental issues and developmental imperatives. The Environmental Law Handbook , now in its 5th edition, clarifies the complexity of this law for a wide range of readers. Twenty specialists in environmental law share the writing, building on the work of previous editions, and working under the editorship of Professor David Farrier and the Hon Paul Stein QC AM. These barristers, solicitors, professors, academics and policy makers apply their wealth of practical experience and knowledge to offer a clear account of environmental planning and protection in NSW. Those familiar with earlier editions will find that the book has been heavily reorganised and rewritten, and redesigned for easier location and use of content. A handbook for practising lawyers and for students, the careful balance of clarification and detail also makes the text more widely useful.
