Our AGM will start from 4pm
At 5pm we will be welcoming our speakers Celina Colquhoun and Juan Lopez from 39 Essex Chambers to discuss issues around COP26 - why is it important, what should be the focus for environmental lawyers, consultants and academics.
Dr Johanna Forster from the Climate Change group / Tyndall Centre at UEA has also agreed to present some of the activities she and her team are involved within this field.
This will be followed by drinks and networking. There will be an option to join remotely; details will be sent out to delegates the day before.
The venue is Birketts LLP Office, Station Road, Cambridge. Please see below for agenda and speaker bios:
