Gowling WLG is pleased to share that its own Jennifer Laura King and Rodney Northey, along with Alastair R. Lucas of the University of Calgary, have co-authored the 2018 reissue of Halsbury's Laws of Canada - Environment (LexisNexis Canada).
A comprehensive and authoritative guide to Canadian environmental law, the new edition covers a range of important topics, including environmental impact assessments, international obligations and civil liability issues.
From the publisher
Climate change. Environmental toxins. Ozone depletion. Mass extinctions and species at risk. The growing recognition of the fragility of the world's ecosystems and the growing emphasis placed on sustainable development and responsible resource management have placed the environment at the forefront of Canada's social, political and, inevitably, legal agenda. The reach of environmental laws can now extend into everyday commercial transactions, corporate takeovers, real estate development, and criminal prosecution - virtually every area of legal practice.
Newly revised and thoroughly updated, the Halsbury's Environment (2018 Reissue) title provides a clear and straightforward understanding of the maze of laws, regulations and legal issues that frame the subject area of environmental law.
