Join HRLA to hear from leading practitioners with unrivalled expertise on environmental law and how it touches our lives; from river waste, air pollution and manure odour, to night flights, contaminated cockles and everything in between.
Environmental law covers a whole range of thorny issues – litigious, regulatory, planning, public law, criminal law and transactional work. Many of these cases can involve human rights arguments based on both the ECHR and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. Much of our domestic legal framework on the environment has an EU legacy underpinned by the case law of the CJEU. As Brexit looms, our environmental law may be about to experience a step-change.
When: 6pm Tuesday 11 April 2017, followed by drinks reception hosted by Clifford Chance
Where: Clifford Chance, 10 Upper Bank Street, London E14 5JJ
