Cases and Materials on Water Pollution Control
Author: Jeffrey G. Miller,Ann Powers,Nancy Long Elder
Publisher: Environmental Law Institute
The study of water pollution control regulation is a study of statutes and their administration. This casebook explores water pollution and the federal statute chiefly designed to control it, the Clean Water Act, and examines how water pollution is addressed, first by the common law and then by statute. An introduction provides the student with an understanding of what constitutes water pollution, where it originates, and how it can be controlled. These materials were originally designed for the introductory course in environmental regulation/environmental law at Pace Law School. A Teachers Manual includes exercises that teach students advanced legal research, familiarity with administrative law mechanisms, and the ability to integrate what they have learned about the Clean Water Act.________________________________________

A Vital Explanation of Water Law and Policy Because demand for and access to quality water far exceeds the current supply, it is increasingly critical to understand the state and federal laws and policies that govern water rights. From farming, fishing, and biology to manufacturing, mine operation, and public water supply, water regulation affects all strata of society. Determining U.S. Water Rights: Different Systems for Different Needs United States Water Law: An Introduction is a concise overview of law and policy related to U.S. water rights and regulation of water quantity and quality. This wide-ranging book reviews the two major systems used to determine rights in the western and eastern states. It explores these different systems, which are based on the divergent factors affecting the two regions – the immense amount of government-owned property and arid conditions in the west, and ownership of riparian land in the east. The author also covers western states that adhere to the "hybrid" system, which recognizes early riparian rights predating adoption of later appropriation systems, and he explains that most states recognize at least some riparian rights to the use of surface water. Special sections detail regulatory considerations such as Native American rights, environmental regulation, nuisance and tort law, and social theory. Tools to Aid Further Research To elucidate basic principles and differences in water law, this book contains Internet links to state water codes and contact information for regulatory agencies that handle applications. It presents key federal case law and statutes and other features to reinforce the material. For law practitioners and environmentalists to property/business owners acquiring or retaining water rights, this is the ideal primer on water law, with numerous tools to aid in further research.

Cases and Materials on the Law of Restitution is an authoritative and scholarly guide written by leading experts who have shaped and defined the law of restitution and unjust enrichment. Extensive coverage of cases and academic perspectives provides a rounded view of the subject. Introductions, notes, and questions enable readers to check their understanding of key issues. The second edition of this seminal title covers many important new cases and academic publications, including Birk's 'absence of basis' approach. The coverage reflects the continuing debates on questions such as: * what is an enrichment? * was the enrichment at the claimant's expense? * what is the role of tracing? * when will proprietary restitution be granted? * when does change of position operate as a defence? * and does corrective justice underpin this area of the law? The book's structure has been updated to reflect the judicial development of the law of restitution, providinga map through this complex subject. This book is invaluable for undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral students, as well as academics working in the area.

With this new edition, Administrative Law, Cases and Materials, continues to present the complex substance of administrative law in a format that is both intellectually satisfying and easily understandable. Prior to publication the book was used at the University of Minnesota where the students found administrative law to be both an exciting and rewarding endeavor. In addition to carefully examining current law, students will become familiar with the relevant historical perspectives so necessary to appreciate the dynamics of today's law. They will become familiar with the so-called progressive movement and its regulatory offspring, the independent agency, with the New Deal regulatory agenda, with the post-World War II consensus embodying the Administrative Procedure Act, with the problem of capture, with aggressive modes of judicial review in response, with the problem ossification of rule-making, and with an array of judicial reinterpretations of settled precedents. This focus on doctrinal coherence and historical background provides a rich intellectual experience. This new Second Edition also: • Includes new cases through 2010 Term of the Supreme Court, including Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the latest separation-of-powers decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, and last year's FCC v. Fox Telev. Stations, Inc., gloss on hard-look judicial review. • Focuses upon the relationships among various administrative law doctrines, such as the relation between the substantial-evidence and arbitrary-and-capricious review standards and the relations between those review standards and the Chevron/Skidmore deference standards and; • Examines split-enforcement agencies such as OSHA establishes as well as analogous structures in the benefit agencies in addition to omnipresent unitary regulatory agency.

"Property lawyers are increasingly engaged in environmental issues, whether it be the increased interest in conservation easements, national regulation of land use through such statutes as the Endangered Species Act and the Clean Water Act, problems of hazardous waste cleanup, pressures to open private land to public use, or dozens of other environmental additions to traditional property law. This new casebook is the first to provide significant materials on emerging and important environmental issues in the property field. It provides an in-depth treatment of traditional property doctrines, while providing cutting-edge coverage of these emerging environmental questions."--Publisher's website.
