Trusted by generations of students and academics alike, Donald McGillivray and Ole Pedersen provide a welcome update of this leading environmental law textbook.

The 8th edition continues to provide broad and comprehensive coverage of the key topics taught on most environmental law courses, explaining the subject in its social and political context and considering both UK and international perspectives. Known for its clear structure and systematic approach, topics are considered by theme and by sector, allowing more experienced readers to explore the intricacies of the subject while also providing a logical introduction for those new to environmental law or without a legal background.

A clear and easy-to-understand writing style helps ensure readers are informed yet not overwhelmed, while useful diagrams and tables help to explain complex points. The new edition also features chapter summaries, information boxes, and self-test questions to help draw out key points and consolidate your learning in preparation for assessments and further research.
