The law of adaptation to climate change : U.S. and international aspects / edited by Michael B. Gerrard & Katrina Fischer Kuh. American Bar Association, Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources, 2012.

K3585.5.L39 2012

 

The laws that attempt to reduce climate change are well known. But what about laws to deal with the climate change that will occur regardless of these efforts? The Law of Adaptation to Climate Change takes a sweeping look at the current and proposed legal aspects of coping with climate change--from drought, extreme precipitation, heat waves, and wild fires to global shifts in temperature, sea level, water and food supply, coastal conditions, infrastructure, ecosystems, and human health and economies. This compendium examines how laws are being modified, finessed, or imagined to deal with the impacts of climate change, both in the United States and around the globe.

KD7869.U57 2012

 

The Illicit Trade in Art and Antiquities provides practical guidance on the modern law relating to cultural objects which have been stolen, looted or illegally exported. It explains how English criminal law principles, including money laundering measures, apply to those who deal in cultural objects in a domestic or international setting. It also discusses the recovery of works of art and antiquities in the English courts where there are competing claims between private individuals, or between individuals and the UK Government or a foreign State. Additionally, the problems posed in attempting to curb trafficking in art and antiquities are explored and the effectiveness of the current law is analyzed.
