This unit examines the legal techniques available to protect the environment in the context of our rapidly developing understanding of sustainability as a global environmental issue and key concepts such as the precautionary principle. Through an examination of both regulatory and market based approaches, the effectiveness of current domestic, European and International techniques is considered. From a consideration of these common themes the unit then explores particular environmental issues. The focus is upon European Community and domestic responses, but placed in their international law context.
