Regulation, Enforcement and Governance in Environmental Law is an updated edition of Richard Macrory's most influential writings. Spanning his entire career, these are all works which have helped shape contemporary environmental law and policy. The book includes the full text of his 2006 Cabinet Office Review on Regulatory Sanctions, new chapters on the Climate Change Act 2008, the Environment Tribunal, and analysis of recent leading cases.
The book is divided into five thematic sections: Regulatory reform, Institutional Reform and Change, the Dynamics of Environmental Law, the Courts and the Environment and Europe and the Environment.
Reviews of the first edition:
'This book is surely destined to become a 'must read' for anyone (academic, practitioner or student) interested in the development of regulation, enforcement, and environmental governance.' P Bishop, IUCN Academy of Environmental Law Journal
'An excellent reference work on environmental law….an extremely important and valuable edition to the environmental lawyer's bookshelf.' C Abbot, Journal of Environmental Law
'It is a rare to find a volume which consumes one's attention for 765 pages – and rarer still that such a blockbuster be a law book…This book is not solely for environmental enthusiasts – it should be essential reading for anyone concerned with the institutional reform, transparency and accountability in the UK and EU.' C MacKenzie, Cambridge Law Journal
