Environmental Law And Three Economies: Navigating A Sprawling Field Of Study, Practice, And Societal Governance In Which Everything Is Connected To Everything Else, Zygmunt J.B. Plater

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The two logistical challenges briefly addressed here are endemic in teaching environmental law—choosing what to teach and deciding how to teach it.
