UKELA Debates New International Context
Jul 01, 2016
Over 200 UKELA members are gathering at the University of Sussex today to discuss the new international context for environmental law.
The conference theme for 2016: “International Environmental Law, from global to local” welcomes speakers and participants from around the globe, including the USA, Canada, Australia, Europe and the UK.
“The conference is well-timed to gather news and perspectives on a wide range of international developments, not least the implications for environmental law of the UK’s referendum result on Brexit” commented UKELA Chair, Stephen Sykes.
“We are taking soundings from our members and specialist Working Parties over the course of the conference programme” added Linda Farrow, UKELA Executive Director. “Trustees will then decide on our plan of action at their meeting later in July.”
The UK Environmental Law Association aims to promote better law for the environment and to improve understanding and awareness of environmental law. UKELA’s members are involved in the practice, study or formulation of environmental law in the UK and the European Union. It attracts both lawyers and non-lawyers and has a broad membership from the private and public sectors.
UKELA prepares advice to government with the help of its specialist working parties, covering a range of environmental law topics.
