Environmental and Resource Management Law (7th edition)


Complete coverage of New Zealand’s legislation and case law in the environmental and resource management law field.

Environmental and resource management law is a major component of legal practice. The continued litigation, ongoing initiatives and changes especially at the national level and other trends have necessitated this edition. The authors identify the sources of  environmental law and governance, before turning to focus on the Resource Management Act 1991 and other key pieces of environmental legislation. This book is intended primarily for legal practitioners and other people working in the environmental and resource management law field, but will also be useful for students, since it covers the same ground as many environmental and  resource management law courses taught in New Zealand universities and other educational institutions.
