There has not always been geographic equity in the protection of the environment and there are those who have concerns that those communities with the least have been disproportionately exposed to environmental hazard. This guide introduces users to resources containing information relevant to legal issues pertinent to the pursuit of environmental justice. Besides the routinely taught primary law, including statutes, regulations and case law, advanced research opportunities exist in the area because there are, for example: relevant executive orders; relevant legislative history for bills that have passed and those that did not; statistics underlying laws on the subject matter; and routinely proposed regulations that are open for comment available on the topic due to the inclusive goals of the environmental justice movement. Where interdisciplinary resources might be helpful to the research in this area, those will also be mentioned. In addition, select examples in each area of concentration will be listed with annotations.--Publisher.
