Today’s five-star site: Environmental Law Net

From the chapter on environmental law:

Environmental Law Net. David S. Blackmar, an environmental lawyer with Murtha Cullina LLP, Boston, created this rich and wide-ranging site in order to better serve his clients, who include general counsel, in-house attorneys and corporate environmental managers. He divides the site between two sets of resources: legal information libraries and “community resources.” The libraries are really just collections of links to material elsewhere on the Web, but it is a thorough and well-organized set of links. It includes federal, state, international and tribal laws and regulations; court and agency decisions; agency documents and databases; resources for environmental compliance; materials relating to enforcement and litigation; and resources having to do with environmental aspects of real estate and corporate transactions. The community part of the site includes a daily news section, with press releases and other news compiled from various sources, and a “desk reference” of Internet tools useful to environmental lawyers. This is an ambitious and useful site.
