This Compendium provides a collection of concise but detailed information and materials primarily targeted for the Environmental Law Course offered to undergraduate students in the Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) Programme at the University of Dar es Salaam School of Law. The materials include court cases and statutes from a wide range of branches of environmental law from different jurisdictions in general and Tanzania in particular. It also provides references and additional information on environmental law principles, norms and rules that exist in various legal instruments at the national, regional and international levels. Important decisions of courts of law at the national, regional and international levels that have expounded on the principles and norms are also provided. Scholarly works by renowned authorities, reports and studies on different aspects of environmental law have also been brought to the fore. It is hoped that this Compendium will make it easier for the law students and researchers to have a clearer understanding of Environmental Law. This will enable them to easily trace leading precedents and authorities in the course of understanding the subject. Diligent students and researchers should be in a position to follow up on the list of references provided for by the authorities on the subjects and also the precedents referred to in cases that are cited in the Compendium. This would certainly provide them with a more comprehensive understanding of the issues raised or discussed. It will also be useful to follow up and keep abreast of developments on the laws and cases to have an update on any changes to the laws and court decisions in various jurisdictions.
