Access to justice in environmental matters has been a topic for increasing legal discourse and law-making in international, European Community (EC) and national arenas. The 1998 Aarhus Convention provides new norms of international law, inspired by the 1992 Rio Declaration.

This timely book presents the state-of-the-art of access to justice in environmental matters in the European Union. It provides a thematic and comparative introduction of the topic, followed by thorough descriptions of EC law and the law of each EU member state.

Do Jesus and His Gospel really matter? Looking at Christianity today, 2000 years later, one wonders whether what He shared with the world was quickly smothered by Old Testament legalism, Zoroastrian fantasies, Greek philosophical speculations, and Germanic folk traditions. Most Christians seem to think that their religion is about "going to heaven," eternal life after death, someone "paying the price" for our sins (to either God or the devil - an issue still not resolved). If Christianity is not first and foremost about His Words of Eternal Life, about the Gospel He preached, but rather about pre-, and preter-Christian ideologies, it has no right to call itself Christian. This book is about Jesus, and Jesus alone. No one should have laid another foundation except with His words being the cornerstone of all we are and do.
From a corporate lawyer in private practice comes a detailed analysis of, and guide to, the conventions of language and structure in drafting corporate agreements. Adams summarizes the traditional techniques of drafting and proposes alternatives that produce clearer, more efficient contracts. This comprehensive and pragmatic book includes examples of different usages and explains in detail the reasons for favoring one over another. Citing other authorities on drafting, legal writing, and English usage and grammar generally, as well as case law, Adams creates an authoritative context for his own arguments and advice. An appendix provides before and after versions of a sample contract identifying inefficient or archaic usages and proposing alternatives. This essential resource examines the parts of a contract and the drafting issues found in each. Adams pays particular attention to the categories of language that occur in the body of the contract and how best to express them. He then addresses more general topics, including use of defined terms and references to time, and discusses various usage that tend to be problematic, such as provisos. Adams also discusses provisions that specify drafting conventions, examines the principles of effective general writing that apply to drafting, and considers aspects of the drafting process. Ideal for anyone who drafts, negotiates, or interprets corporate agreements, this work will find a place in the libraries and on the desks of practicing lawyers and law students alike.
