Publisher Confirmed for First Earth Law Legal Textbook


Today, Earth Law Center finalized a contract with Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory, U.S., of the famed “red and black” Aspen Casebook Series, to publish the first ever law school textbook on Earth Law, including the Rights of Nature movement, entitled "Earth Law: Emerging Ecocentric Law."

New York, NY, May 23, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Specific textbook subject matters include an overview of the Rights of Nature movement, human environmental rights, animal rights, the public trust doctrine, Earth Jurisprudence, guardianship of nature, and more. The textbook will feature over twenty leading academics and practitioners in these and other fields.

“Through the textbook, students will understand the dynamic nature of law and develop tools to practice in cutting-edge areas of environmental law and governance,” said Grant Wilson, Directing Attorney of Earth Law Center. “We are thrilled to partner with one of the world’s leading textbook publishers to educate the next generation of environmental lawyers.”

The textbook will be published in 2020 and will be available in the U.S. and internationally. While targeted at law schools, the textbook is also being made available to undergraduate and graduate programs.

“Earth Law can help solve the environmental crisis that threatens the integrity of ecosystems across the globe,” said Tony Zelle, who co-leads the project and serves on Earth Law Center’s Board of Directors. “Ecocentric laws are developing at an increasing pace as courts and legislatures reflect societies’ increasing moral commitment to future generations,” he continued. “This textbook will enable students and professionals to become practitioners in this movement.”
