By Baur, Donald. American Bar Association. Third edition. 2021.
Even among the other landmark environmental laws passed in the heyday of American environmental legislation, the ESA stands out as perhaps the most stringent, most comprehensive, and most controversial. Its comprehensive approach has a significant impact on the management and use of public and private lands and waters. As the ESA approaches its 50th anniversary, it remains a lightning rod for litigation, and the source of ongoing legal debate and competing interpretations. Now in its third edition, Endangered Species Act: Law, Policy and Perspectives is an authoritative guide to the history of the ESA, the Act's most critical sections, the twists and turns of its implementation, and the cutting-edge issues facing the protection of endangered wildlife and its habitat. This updated edition serves as a guide for both the novice and the more experienced practitioner to the ins and outs of the ESA. It begins with the building blocks of the ESA: the processes for listing species and design…

Focusing on family law practitioners, Unbundling Legal Services is a particularly appropriate resource given the unique promise that unbundling holds for family law litigants. In many jurisdictions, self-representation rates are highest in family cases. But, as any family law attorney (or family court litigant) knows, these are the case types that arguably benefit most from attorney involvement.

This important new book provides a crucial step forward in matching individuals with the family law services they need. Written especially for the family lawyer, the book's topics include: Why unbundling works for both clients and lawyers—and how to implement it The limited scope non-court family lawyer Client intake How a family lawyer can provide limited scope representation, from dispute resolution and dra…

Exploring how the law can be used to influence, for better and for worse, the lives of the billions of individual animals we call wildlife, this new book focuses not only on the legal issues involved but also on the compelling ethical and moral issues that are inextricably intertwined with our treatment of wild animals. For a subject so complex and variegated, the editors have chosen essay chapters from some of the country's most knowledgeable and experienced wildlife lawyers and advocates on illustrative and focused issues that have broad implications for practitioners in the area. Framed around specific issues, each chapter focuses on the significant and often unrealized power of U.S. law to influence wildlife protections around the world. This is an informative and understandable resource for lawyers, scholars, and the increasing number of citizens who care about the future of wildlife.
