The East Midlands region covers Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, part of Buckinghamshire and part of Northamptonshire.
ABOUT OUR GROUP
The East Midlands Group has been running successfully for many years. Indeed, it was one of the first, if not the first, regional groups to be established. Many of its founding members, notably Tom Huggon and Graham Machin, are still active both in the Group and within UKELA nationally. Our members come from throughout the East Midlands – Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. We welcome student members from throughout the region.
Contact the convenor if you would like to join the group.
Laura Hughes – solicitor and partner at Browne Jacobson LLP (Chair)
Will Thomas - associate solicitor at Shoosmiths (Convenor)

We aim to have up to three speaker meetings each year, plus occasional trips to sites of environmental interest. Recent events have included:
talk from Tim Pitt, Integrated Water Project Manager at the Rivers Trust
on the work of the Rivers Trust generally plus the issues and challenges
surrounding enforcement undertakings.
