Environmental law : a legal research guide

Christopher C. Dykes (Author), Daniel G. Donahue (Author)
"The purpose of this research guide is to introduce the researcher, whether an attorney, scholar, law student, or information specialist researching in this field, to the primary and secondary resources available on environmental law, in print and online. Specifically, this guide will explore state and federal sources of primary law including the statutes, regulations, case law, and agency decisions. Finding tools such as Digests as well as citators designed to ensure the accuracy of sources will also be discussed. This book will cover most of the numerous secondary sources available because of the complexity of environmental law, particularly its regulatory structure at the federal level. These sources include books, legal encyclopedias, treatises, practice guides, dictionaries, law journals/periodicals, and news/current awareness sources. Online research is also important in the area of environmental law. It includes electronic subscription databases with comprehensive legal research platforms such as Westlaw, Lexis Advance, and Bloomberg Law, as well as the more specialized databases such as the Environment and Energy Daily online publications. Free internet sites, such as government agency websites, provide a wealth of information and documents beyond what is available through the commercial databases"--Provided by the publisher
