UKELA's Bath conference - 20 years in the making
The 2007 UKELA 20th anniversary conference was officially a sell-out! Over 220 delegates and speakers booked onto the event at Bath University for a weekend of stimulating presentations, discussion and meeting old and new friends. Thanks again to the main sponsors – WSP and 39 Essex Street – for making it possible and to all the speakers and chairs of sessions who kindly supported UKELA’s work.
Environ’s sponsorship of off-setting carbon equivalent to half a tonne per person easily covered the transport impacts of the conference. Thanks also go to No 5 Chambers for the stylish folders and Groundsure for our reusable bags.
The conference papers published in Lawtext Publishing’s Journal, Environmental Law and Management, have been circulated to all UKELA members, and are now available for wider audience.
