Environmental law is a broad subject area affecting many potential cases and clients. For example, toxic tort and personal injury attorneys may require comprehensive knowledge of environmental law to deal with premises liability claims and personal injury claims filed by plaintiffs whose properties have been compromised due to environmental law violations or hazardous spills. Attorneys serving business and industrial clients need a comprehensive understanding of environmental law to ensure contracts and business practices are compliant with current federal and state legislation regarding waste disposal, emissions and other areas of concern.
Environmental Law Today
Environmental law changes radically with new precedent-setting court cases and new federal and state laws passed as a result of international agreements and domestic benchmarks for environmental protection. Knowing how to protect clients from claims and potential legal issues is an important part of any environmental law practice, and indeed most personal injury law and business law firms.
Taking continuing legal education (CLE) courses in environmental law prepares attorneys for dealing with a variety of issues, including:
- Environmental issues and business contracts
- Hazardous spill claims
- Toxic tort claims
- Water supply and water contamination claims
- Ground erosion and grounds toxicity claims
- Claims related to wind energy
- Claims involving sustainable energy
- Claims involving fracking and the oil industry
