e-law is our electronic journal and newsletter. It is sent out to all members via email every 2 months.
e-law aims to keep our members up-to-date on UKELA news and events, and informed about new law, hot topics and matters in practice. It also publishes themed articles with views on how we can develop environmental law for a better environment. We invite submissions for consideration for publication. If you would like to submit an article, please send it to the editor firstname.lastname@example.org. Please read our style guide first.
Members can read the latest editions on our Members Only page. For older editions (2017 and before), please take a look at our archive.
