UKELA Scotland operates as a joint Regional Group and Working Party. The convenor is Richard Leslie and there is a committee to support him. There is also a Scots Law Working Party, led by Gordon McCreath. Scotland held a well-attended AGM on 14 January 2016, including welcome input from Georgette Herd by video link from Orkney. The sub-committee reformed with Richard Leslie remaining as convenor. Anne Johnstone, Jamie Whittle, Joanna Waddell and Bridget Marshall all agreed to stand on the sub-committee.
Events Coming Up
In advance of the EU referendum, please join us for a discussion session for Scottish members to consider what environmental law – and in particular climate change law – might be like in Scotland in the event of a vote to leave the EU.
Navraj Singh Ghaleigh who is the Senior Lecturer in Climate Law at Edinburgh Law School at the University of Edinburgh has very kindly agreed to provide his perspective on this issue, and following his introductory presentation the question will be opened to participants to contribute to the discussion. Although the focus will be principally climate change law, it is anticipated that the discussion will cover other areas of environmental law as well. Book your place via our Events Page.
Join us in Edinburgh on 28 June for a lunchtime seminar on Enforcement Undertakings. Speakers from SEPA, Ramboll Environ and Weightmans LLP will update on the latest position, after a buffet lunch.
