Now Booking - Monday 20 May 2019
Young UKELA is delighted to announce the latest in our series of 'The Basics' Seminars, which aim to explain the fundamentals of environmental law to those in the early(ish) years of practice, in an inclusive format that encourages the presentations to give way to friendly Q&A, debate and networking.
The seminar will focus on an are of law that is both topical and important: the law of fisheries. Our expert contributors will discuss the existing law regulating sea fishing in UK waters, enforcement, the Common Fisheries Policy and issues arising from Brexit.
- Daniel Owen, barrister, Fenners Chambers
- Sarah Denman, UK Environment lawyer and lead on fisheries, ClientEarth
- Dr Richard Cadell, Lecturer in Law, Cardiff University
- Speaker from Marine Management Organisation invited
Like other Young UKELA seminars, the event is informal in nature, intended to encourage participation and learning.
The seminar will be chaired by Ned Westaway, UKELA Vice Chair (and barrister at Francis Taylor Building).
Young UKELA holds 2 to 3 seminars every year on a wide range of topics. Our highly successful "The Basics" seminars continue to run in 2019. We have covered key issues and hot topics, with experienced and knowledgeable speakers.
We also put on a couple of social gatherings for young UKELA members - these include guided walks, drinks and informal meals. Everyone is made very welcome, so do join in.
About Young UKELA
Young UKELA was launched in November 2008. The aim of Young UKELA is to provide a forum for more junior practitioners, up to about seven years post-qualification, with an interest in environmental law (although all are welcome at our popular events). We provide training and education, a space for debate and opportunities for professional development and networking, as well as social events. Our activities aim to complement the range of seminars and groups active within UKELA as a whole.
Young UKELA events are organised by trustees James Burton, Ned Westaway, Heather Hamilton and Simone Davidson.
