Environmental, Energy & Resources

Environmental law can impact a variety of legal areas and can impact companies as they navigate sometimes complicated regulation landscapes. The National Law Review has legal experts in environmental law who examine developments in the field and break them down, providing thoughtful analysis for readers. 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the main regulatory body for many environmental issues facing companies in the United States.  The National Law Review covers staffing changes at the EPA, as well as the  Agency’s compliance requirements, greenhouse-gas emission limits, to hazardous waste disposal requirements at state and federal levels. Additionally, the EPA's Clean Power Plan and resulting litigation is also analyzed by the writers who write for the National Coverage of the Department of Energy, and how the DOE is moving forward on energy research as well as regulations involving the cultivation of current energy sources is also covered by the legal writers at the National Law Review. Visitors will also find information on biodiesel, biofuels, and continual research in creating more sustainable, cleaner energy sources. Readers can find the latest cases from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), new legislation, and up-to-date information about new levels or regulations when they become effective.

Along with regulations, readers can read about major legislation that impacts the environmental law landscape, both at the federal and state level.  Litigation involving the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act, as well as state level legislation like the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). 

Those who want to find environmental news and law from the EU or other regions of the world will also find these topics covered on NLR. Enforcement actions, legislation, global environmental concerns, the Toxic Substances Chemical Act violations, and other environmental regulations and news, are also available on The National Law Review. Visitors will find a wide range of topics, litigation, agency news and updates, and news stories from the US and around the world.
