Natural Resources Law covers legal issues concerning land, water, wildlife, and other naturally occurring elements and resources. Legal issues that arise under natural resources law are often related to environmental law.

Some of the areas litigated under environmental laws include groundwater and drinking water contamination; Brownfields (the redevelopment of contaminated properties); Superfund cases; permitting and compliance matters (including governmental agency challenges); hazardous substance discharges; wetlands; CAFRA, regulatory "takings" matters, and toxic torts. Various federal legislation, such as the Code of Federal Regulations, governs conservation of resources efforts.
