Welcome to the information pages for Annual Conference Week 2021
For 2021, we will be hosting a week of top class content covering the latest topics in the environmental law field. We will run the entire event online, although we do hope to introduce some additional face-to-face social elements if Government guidance permits, so you will be able to join in no matter where in the world you are based. Join us from 14 to 18 June 2021!
Our programme covers a wide range of content. Do you want to know more about how environmental regulation is going to work in the UK post Brexit? Or perhaps you have a passion for rewilding and biodiversity. Climate change is at the very top of the to do list, particularly with COP26 coming to Glasgow in November - hear from experts about how litigation is contributing to the solution. Meanwhile, climate science has a synergy with the law which is vital - find out how. And we take a look at the role of specialised environmental courts and tribunals across the world.

Our specialised Working Parties will host their always popular sessions in the first part of the week. Here, you can deep dive into your area of specialism or find out more in a new area to you. We are also excited to bring 2 new panels for 2021; our academic panel will kick Conference Week off with an overview of the future of environmental law and rights of nature over the next 5 years and beyond, whilst our international panel will hear from different jurisdictions around the world as they assess and debate developments where they live. Look at the programme.
As ever, we are thrilled to bring keynote addresses to add vibrancy and depth to the programme. And we are proud to offer speaking opportunities to those in the early part of their environmental law career, giving them the chance to talk about their research areas and interests.
With a sprinkling of social activities thrown in Conference Week really promises to deliver to all practitioners. We have different events at times throughout the day, allowing you to fit our conference into your busy lives at home and work. Why not take a moment and book your place now! We look forward to welcoming you to Conference Week 2021.
