At a time of profound change and rethinking, this book provides insights into how environmental law in the UK has developed into its current form, and considers challenges it will face in the future. Irresolute Clay is not a legal history or textbook, nor a conventional set of legal memoirs. Instead it offers a personal account of the inside stories as experienced by one of the key architects of contemporary environmental law. Taking a thematic approach, it charts fundamental tenets of the subject (such as environmental sanctions, the European dimension, developing the academic discipline of environmental law, and environmental courts and tribunals), from the beginnings of the modern environmental law era in the 1970s to the present day.
Regulation, Enforcement and Governance in Environmental Law is an updated edition of Richard Macrory's most influential writings. Spanning his entire career, these are all works which have helped shape contemporary environmental law and policy. The book includes the full text of his 2006 Cabinet Office Review on Regulatory Sanctions, new chapters on the Climate Change Act 2008, the Environment Tribunal, and analysis of recent leading cases. The book is divided into five thematic sections: Regulatory reform, Institutional Reform and Change, the Dynamics of Environmental Law, the Courts and the Environment and Europe and the Environment. Reviews of the first edition: 'This book is surely destined to become a 'must read' for anyone (academic, practitioner or student) interested in the development of regulation, enforcement, and environmental governance.' P Bishop, IUCN Academy of Environmental Law Journal 'An excellent reference work on environmental law....an extremely important and valuable edition to the environmental lawyer's bookshelf.' C Abbot, Journal of Environmental Law 'It is a rare to find a volume which consumes one's attention for 765 pages - and rarer still that such a blockbuster be a law book...This book is not solely for environmental enthusiasts - it should be essential reading for anyone concerned with the institutional reform, transparency and accountability in the UK and EU.' C MacKenzie, Cambridge Law Journal
