Traurig, Vítězslav ; Sobotka, Michal (advisor) ; Pokorný, Jiří (referee)
Thesis title Liability for environmental damages Abstract This thesis deals with the position of the institute of liability for environmental damages in the Czech legal order. This is a relatively complex issue in the field of environmental law, which has been constantly evolving. The environment extends beyond national borders, therefore legislation of the environmental protection, including liability for environmental damages, is strongly influenced by international law and, in particular, European law.

Because of the fragmentation of legislation and different views of individual acts on the concept of environmental damages, this thesis focuses on the analysis of these views and explanation of the acts' purposes. The most important and in practice the only legislation applied in this area is the system of imposing preventive and remedial measures in the acts regulating individual environmental components and sources of environmental...

Thesis "Legislation of handling of sources of danger to the environment" Abstract The thesis deals with material sources of danger to the environment in terms of legal forms of environmental protection from negative impact of these sources. The topic was narrowed at the beginning of the thesis to waste and chemicals so now it represents these two huge and significant groups of threats to the environment. The reason to narrow the topic was existence of a very large scale of different sources of environmental danger and that could cause shattering of the topic during writing the thesis. The thesis describes in individual chapters various forms of waste and chemicals handling in mutual relationship with legal obligations of subjects of law. The thesis at the same time attempts to evaluate valid legislation in terms of sufficiency of legal obligations and whether these obligations are clear and specific enough to enable high level of protection of the environment and human health (at least). Czech waste management legislation is massively influenced by directive of European union waste law, so the thesis compares intention of union legislator (if it is available) with the results of czech transposition. The waste and chemicals handling chapters are connected with supporting chapter about various forms of legal...
