Nature Conservation Working Party: Wildlife Law course
This course is designed for those whose jobs require them to understand the practical impact of the legislation surrounding wildlife
(e.g. conservation officers, conservation advisors, county and national park ecologists, site managers, planning officers, stewardship officers, water company conservation staff etc). It will concentrate on enabling participants to make the best use of the law on the ground and to avoid the pitfalls that accompany such a technical subject as the law.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the practical rather than the academic impact of the law. The experienced team of course tutors will seek to make the issue come alive by reference to real casework situations and thus to take away some of the mystique attached to law and to de-mystify some of the jargon. We hope that the course will help participants regard Wildlife Law as a tool which they can use to safeguard sites and species, rather than as the sole preserve of solicitors, lawyers and other legal specialists.
