Environmental Law student handbook launched
Mar 31, 2011
Students interested in Environmental Law will get extra help from a new handbook launched by the UK Environmental Law Association (UKELA).
Environmental Law is an expanding field offering employment as lawyers, environmental consultants, environmental scientists, campaigning NGOs or working in government. But it’s a competitive area to get into and the handbook is full of practical information, tips and case studies.
The handbook was launched at UKELA’s annual student competitions day (Wednesday March 30th) which showcases emerging talent in Environmental Law and mooting.
The winner of the Andrew Lees prize – which was for an article and presentation on the Aarhus convention – went to Oliver Newman.
The winners of the Lord Slynn senior moot were Thea Osmund-Smith of No 5 Chambers and Justin Jarmola of St Ives Chambers. The student trophy went to Alice McDonald and Tom Boardman-Weston of Durham University.
UKELA aims to promote Environmental Law and support students with an interest in it. Chair, Mark Brumwell, said: “we encourage interested students to enter our competitions and join UKELA. We are still inviting entries for the Simon Ball Prize for outstanding academic achievement and for our bursary competition”.
The deadline for the bursary competition (with a total of £1500 on offer) is on April 4th
The Simon Ball Prize for outstanding academic achievement closes at the end of April
Thanks to No 5 chambers for sponsoring the student competitions’ day and the UKELA moots. Thanks also to Lawtext Publishing for the subscriptions to Environmental Law and Management and to University College London for hosting the student competitions' day.
