Environmental law is a field of law that regulates the impact of human activities on the natural environment. This includes regulating pollution, protecting natural resources, and ensuring that endangered species and their habitats are protected.
Environmental law covers a wide range of regulatory frameworks at both the national and international levels, such as the Clean Air Act in the United States and the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The ultimate goal of environmental law is to balance the needs of humans with the needs of the environment by encouraging sustainable practices and protecting natural resources for future generations.
Environmental lawyers play a crucial role in enforcing environmental regulations, representing clients in legal disputes, and advising companies and governments on environmental policies and practices.
Environmental law is a collective term describing international treaties (conventions), statutes, regulations, and common law or national legislation (where applicable) that operates to regulate the interaction of humanity and the natural environment toward the purpose of reducing the impacts of human activity.
The topic may be divided into two major subjects: pollution control and remediation, and resource conservation, and individual exhaustion.
The limitations and expenses that such laws may impose on commerce and the often(non-monetized) benefit of environmental protection have generated and continue to generate significant controversy.
Given the broad scope of environmental law, no fully definitive list of environmental laws is possible. The following discussion and resources give an indication of the breadth of law that falls within the “environmental” metric.
