Pillsbury special legal consultant Helen G Cook writes book on nuclear energy
A book covering the legal and regulatory infrastructure for a nuclear power programme, as well as the procurement, construction, financing and related fuel transactions for the development of new nuclear plants, has been published. The Law of Nuclear Energy (First Edition) was authored by Helen G Cook, special legal consultant at Pillsbury.
The book, which was editedby George Borovas, also captures the complexity of nuclear power development and covers all of these topics in simple terms and plain language.
According to Pillsbury, it effectively describes the legal framework that supports the global nuclear industry, not merely from the perspective of a sophisticated legal adviser but from someone who understands and is part of this industry.
