Brexit Environmental Update

The EU has been the major influence on UK environmental law over the last thirty years. Brexit has raised unique challenges and opportunities for future of environmental law in this country. Will international environmental conventions become more legally significant?  

In the absence of the European Commission and the European Court of Justice, do we have adequate legal machinery to ensure that government and public bodies comply with their environmental obligations? Should national Parliament have an enhanced role in the future? Will we see environmental law diverge within the devolved jurisdictions and does that matter?  

These and other questions will be addressed at this Debate.

CPD hours: 3 hours.

In association with Society for the Environment, who will be attending the event,



Professor Richard Macrory, Faculty of Laws, University College, London

Matthew Townsend, Partner and Head of Environment and Climate Change Practice, Allen & Overy

Joseph Owen, Senior Researcher, Institute for Government



Pamela Castle OBE
