New Look For Resource Management Law

New Look, Formats for Environmental and Resource Management Law 


Popular and definitive guide for practitioners has been completely updated and is now available in looseleaf and online formats.

Auckland, New Zealand, 16 September 2008: LexisNexis New Zealand today announced that Environmental and Resource Management Law, a must-have title for practitioners working in environmental and resource management law, is now a looseleaf and online subscription product.

In addition to content from Derek Nolan’s award-winning third edition textbook, Environmental and Resource Management Law has new chapters on the topical areas of climate change and the landscape and visual aspects of resource management law. It has been entirely updated since 2005 by a panel of experienced practitioners and academics, and has separate chapters on environmental assessment, environmental litigation and statutory remedies.

Darryn Keiller, General Manager of LexisNexis New Zealand, says the new format is a significant advancement that will enable the product to keep pace with the constantly evolving practice area. “This documentation can now be constantly updated to provide up-to-the-minute information that keeps pace with new and amended legislation. The online format gives immediate access to information, including the most recent cases, at the click of a button.”

Environmental and Resource Management Law focuses on the Resource Management Act 1991 and amending legislation; provides a comprehensive introduction to modern environmental law; and outlines procedural aspects of environmental law important to practitioners.

According to Principal Environment Judge, RJ Bollard, the new documentation makes a valuable contribution to the practice area. “Environmental and Resource Management Law has been produced by experienced practitioners and leading academics for people working in environmental and resource management law. It is a well researched work that makes a significant contribution to the advancement of understanding the law, theory and practice of resource management."
