This collection of essays adopts a distinctive approach to environmental legal issues. The contributors represent a variety of specialisations, ranging from public law to international law and international relations. Some essays are written from within a UK domestic law perspective, butothers adopt a broadly comparative, supra-national or international approach. The contributors do not assume that problems and solutions in 'environmental law' should be perceived as wholly distinct from the preoccupations of existing legal specialisms. New and proposed legal responses inevitably build on or employ established legal techniques, rather than startingcompletely afresh. The contributors do however, regard environmental problems as posing or at least illuminating significant challenges to received patterns of legal thought. In the light of this, the contributors therefore investigate aspects of law's influnce in environmental decision-making, andconsider whether legal institutions and forms of thought can respond adequately to the challenge of environmental change.
Tim Jewell and Jenny Steele are both lecturers in law at the University of Southampton. Both have published widely in the area of international law. Tim Jewell is also Managing Editor of the Journal Environmental Law and Management
