Environmental Law: Introduction
The research guide is a selective resource to assist the legal researcher in conducting research in the area of United States Environmental Law. It is not comprehensive in scope or intended to be a catchall source, but rather to act as a starting point for the researcher to find additional sources and relevant information. At its core, the guide attempts to lead the researcher to up-to-date items held by the Western Michigan University-Cooley Law School libraries. Environmental law may encompass a wide array of legal areas. This guide focuses upon environmental issues pertaining to human health and natural resource issues. Except for a handful of exceptions, land use issues have been omitted. Additionally, the guide is tilted towards Michigan sources on the topic while other state specific sources have been deliberately omitted. Lastly, it should be noted that Michigan’s environmental laws have been predominately codified in the National Resources and Environmental Protection Act..
The guide is organized according to the topics listed to the left, in the guide outline.
In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog. Where possible, guide sections about statutes link to the appropriate law.
