The study of water pollution control regulation is a study of statutes and their administration. This casebook explores water pollution and the federal statute chiefly designed to control it, the Clean Water Act, and examines how water pollution is addressed, first by the common law and then by statute. An introduction provides the student with an understanding of what constitutes water pollution, where it originates, and how it can be controlled. These materials were originally designed for the introductory course in environmental regulation/environmental law at Pace Law School. A Teachers Manual includes exercises that teach students advanced legal research, familiarity with administrative law mechanisms, and the ability to integrate what they have learned about the Clean Water Act.________________________________________

The Fourth Edition is updated to take account of new developments in the law, new regulations, and new cases. The most comprehensive updates are found in Chapter Four on the Clean Air Act and Chapter Five on the Clean Water Act. Chapter Four has been reorganized to provide professors and students with a new comprehensive section on climate change, including the EPA's many regulatory efforts to address greenhouse gas emissions from both mobile and stationary sources, critical U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and an overview of the Clean Power Plan, which is in litigation as the Fourth Edition goes to press. Chapter 5 includes a new approach to the "waters of the United States" element of Clean Water Act jurisdiction. This section now summarizes key U.S. Supreme Court interpretations from Riverside Bayview Homes, SWANCC, and Rapanos, then provides an overview of both the June 2015 "waters of the United States" rule and the litigation challenging that rule, emphasizing the key issues. Chapter Five now also includes an expanded discussion of stormwater and the two new U.S. Supreme Court cases on Clean Water Act jurisdiction over stormwater. As was true in the Third Edition, the Fourth Edition continues to increase the number of "The Rest of the Story" notes after cases. These notes trace the context and the aftermath of cases and their continuing implications. In addition, by Fall 2016, adopters of the Fourth Edition will have access to fully updated Power Point slides and a new Teachers Manual with links to videos and other teaching materials for use in class.

In recent decades, the volume of EU legislation on financial law has increased exponentially. Banks, insurers, pension funds, investment firms and other financial institutions all are increasingly subject to European regulatory rules, as are day to day financial transactions. Serving as a comprehensive and authoritative introduction to European banking and financial law, the book is organized around the three economic themes that are central to the financial industry: (i) financial markets; (ii) financial institutions; and (iii) financial transactions. It covers not only regulatory law, but also commercial law that is relevant for the most important financial transactions. It also explains the most important international standard contracts such as LMA loan contracts and the GMRA repurchase agreements. Covering a broad range of aspects of financial law from a European perspective, it is essential reading for students of financial law and European regulation.
