Environmental Law

Definition

Environmental Law (1971) The field of law dealing with the maintenance and protection of the environment, including preventive measures such as the requirements of preparing environmental-impact statements, as well as measures to assign liability and provide cleanup for incidents that harm the environment. • Because most environmental litigation involves disputes with governmental agencies, environmental law is heavily intertwined with administrative law.
