April is the month of Earth Day, so it’s a good time to highlight the environmental law materials in the Social Law Library’s Collection.
Water, air and soil issues are a concern for attorneys in many different practice areas. Real estate specialists have to be aware of the effect development will have on a proposed building site. Personal injury lawyers need information on toxic substances that disable their clients. Corporation lawyers have to keep up with pollution liability issues that affect shareholders. Social Law’s collection has a wide range of primary and analytical sources that cover environmental law on the federal, state and international levels.
For those interested in online research Social Law publishes the decisions of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection from 1983 to present in a searchable database.
