Environmental Responsibilities Law New South Wales provides wide coverage of the environmental legislation. Overall ERLS provides awareness of rights, obligations and responsibilities in relation to protecting the environment, climate change and water regulatory compliance issues and exposure to potential liability and penalties. The authoring team – Jeff Kildea,  Zaina Shahnazwaz, Olia Koudrina and Dr Rachel Baird – provide practical commentary on the major legislative provisions, significant reported and unreported judgments, environmental developments, environmental audit and compliance programs. 
Specialist chapters in the service include: 
  • "Environmental Regulation" by The Hon Justice Brian Preston, Chief Judge of the Land & Environment Court NSW.
  • Jeff Kildea, Acting Commissioner of the Land and Environment Court provides annotations and commentary to the Land and Environment Court Act and Regulation and populates with cross-references to relevant and more extensive commentary in Thomson Reuter's Planning & Development Service NSW and Land and Environment Court NSW service. This creates companion services across the environmental and planning products.

NSW water legislation has been added to the service, starting with the Water Management Act 2000 and the Water Management (General) Regulation 2004. This chapter is maintained by Olia Koudrina of NSW Trade & Investment.
