The need for environmental protection is all around: air and water pollution; severe weather; sea level rise; loss of species, wetlands, glaciers and biodiversity; water and food shortages; disease and pandemics; and food and water insecurity. It's also close at hand: the water from the tap; the local air quality index; local land use and development; flooding and storm damage. There are also constant reminders, as young people demand, and future generations deserve, continued vigilance in the face of environmental challenges and the climate crisis. Modern Environmental Law is a current casebook that examines signature federal, state, international and global laws, including common law and public trust, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, climate change, environmental rights, water rights, international environmental law, and environmental justice. The contents are torn from the headlines, including recent decisions from the 2021-2022 and 2022-23 Terms of the United States Supreme Court (e.g., West Virginia v. EPA; Sackett v. EPA, etc.). The casebook also integrates many related concepts, including separation of powers, federalism and individual rights, and interacts with other areas of law, including constitutional law, administrative law, property and civil procedure, and land use law.
