Australian Environmental Law: Norms, Principles and Rules, 3rd Edition provides a detailed examination of the fundamental concepts and principles of the environmental legal system in Australia. This new edition updates relevant State, Territory and Commonwealth legislation and case law and expands on the themes set out in the 2nd edition, namely:
- the origins and contexts of environmental governance
- the movement toward ecologically sustainable development
- the relevance and function of ecologically sustainable development today in the legal system
- the range of instrumental rules supporting environmental governance.
The 3rd edition in particular expands upon the range of instrumental rules by analysing through the case law the emerging sets of rules of competence and limitation on the one hand and the emerging sets of purposive, deliberative, methodological, strategic, liability and market rules on the other hand. This thematic and principled approach adopted in Australian Environmental Law: Norms, Principles and Rules
, 3rd Edition presents the reader with coverage of the important issues surrounding this area of the law in a clear and concise way.
