This work comments on 50 key judgments which the Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance have given on European Community environmental law. For each judgment, the facts and procedures are described, followed by an extract of the essential parts of the judgment and a commentary which places the judgment into its legal, environmental and political context.

The 50 cases have been selected in order to cover all substantive and procedural aspects of Community Environmental Law, as regards the provisions of the EC Treaty (cases 1 to 9), horizontal problems (cases 10 to 18), water and air (cases 19 to 25), products and noise (cases 26 to 32), nature protection (cases 33 to 38), waste management (cases 39 to 45) and procedural questions (cases 46 to 50). Particular emphasis has been laid on commenting on recent judgments: thus, the oldest case which is discussed dates from 1991 and 43 of the 50 judgments were given in 1996 or later.

The book provides a clear insight into the jurisdiction of the European Courts and should be of particular use to practitioners of national and Community environmental law, researchers, law students and administrators.
