Professor Michael Gerrard’s Publications

Since 1989, Michael Gerrard has edited a newsletter, Environmental Law in New York, which covers environmental decisions in federal and state courts in New York and other legal and regulatory developments.  It is now a monthly newsletter of LexisNexis, produced in conjunction with Arnold & Porter.  Each issue consists of a lead article and then summaries of the new cases and other developments. Below is a listing of all the lead articles. Links to articles published after 2000 are to the versions of the articles in the LexisNexis database, and access requires a Lexis account; Lexis has given us permission to post PDFs of earlier articles. Subscriptions to the newsletter may be ordered from LexisNexis here. Persons interested in writing a lead article for the newsletter should contact is Managing Editor, L. Margaret Barry, at margaret.barry@arnoldporter.com
