Law Library Book of the Month:
Managing Environmental Risk: Real Estate and Business Transactions
Recent events have shown that environmental risks should not be ignored when entering into a real estate or business transaction. To help attorneys and other real estate professionals to identify and address environmental liability risks, the library has Managing Environmental Risk: Real Estate and Business Transactions by environmental law specialists Jennifer L. Machlin and Tomme R. Young. Intended for both specialists and nonspecialists, this wide-ranging softbound book concisely explains environmental liability risks and also serves as a more practical problem-solving tool for attorneys. Machlin and Young offer a summary of the most important features of all the major federal statutes related to environmental regulation (Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, etc.), which often serve as models for state statutes. The authors also discuss general federal standards which highlight the most common types of environmental liabilities that could be triggered by certain transactions.
