Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
Five Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers, led by Austin Partner Jeff Civins, participated in the preparation of the recently released third edition of the Texas Environmental Law treatise published by Thomson Reuters as Volumes 45 and 46 of its Texas Practice Series.
The two-volume project, comprising about 2,000 pages contributed by 43 members of the environmental section of the State Bar of Texas, is intended to be a practice-oriented resource on Texas environmental law. It includes in-depth discussions of a range of topics relating to environmental law, as well as an overview of state agencies, administrative procedures, and enforcement.
Topics covered include: pollution statutes and other environmental programs; regulation of specific substances, such as radioactive materials and used oil; regulation of specific activities, including agricultural, oil and gas, and renewable energy; private causes of actions relating to environmental law; and topics of general interest to practitioners, including business transactions, insurance, and ethics.
Under the direction of Civins, the hard-back version was published originally in 1997 and revised in 2005, and updated annually with paper pocket-parts. It is now being converted into an annual paperback set. Haynes and Boone contributors include Civins, Austin Of Counsel Jim Braddock, Houston Partner Michael Mazzone, Austin Partner Mary Mendoza and Houston Associate Varant Yegparian.
“My co-editors, Jimmy Alan Hall and Mary Sahs, and I are extremely proud of this comprehensive treatise, which represents a substantial effort by many talented lawyers in our state’s environmental bar,” said Civins. “The new edition of Texas Environmental Law will provide environmental practitioners -- and those in other areas who have a need to understand aspects of environmental law -- a handy, go-to reference on this complex and important subject.”
The treatise is available for ordering online at the Thomson Reuters website.
