The Environmental Law Reporter in the Classroom

The Environmental Law Reporter' is a cumulative monthly loose-leaf service devoted chiefly to the environmental issues confronting private attorneys, governmental officials, and teachers. During the fall semester of 1971, the Reporter was employed as a text for the University of Maryland's basic course in environmental law. This review will attempt to measure its potential as a teaching tool.


Guidebook for Litigation

The common law is still the most useful and flexible weapon in the arsenal of those who care enough about the quality of our environment to do something about it. This is the basic premise of the authors of The Environmental Law Handbook, both of whom are experienced trial lawyers and are not afraid to try novel methods of coping with problem areas of the law. They contend that even with the current pressure to solve newly recognized environmental problems, we must turn once again to the common law.
