Halfday seminar 9 May 2008
Launch of the Sullivan Report
The Centre of European Law together with the UK Environmental Law Association are organising a half day seminar to discuss the recommendations of the panel report on Access to Justice in Environmental Matters, chaired by Mr Justice Sullivan - the UK and European aspects.
How can an ordinary member of the public, community group and environmental organisation seek justice in challenging decisions affecting their environment? Will they be allowed to bring a legal challenge? Who shoulders the burden of costs? How does the UK compare with the rest of Europe on these matters? And how can we enable change to ensure that everyone has access to justice when it comes to vital environmental decisions that affect quality of life and well-being?
In the chair
Lord Justice Carnwath, President of UKELA
Mr Justice Sullivan, Royal Courts of Justice
David Wolfe, Matrix Chambers
James Kennedy, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
Professor Richard Macrory, University College London
John Hontelez, European Environmental Bureau
(Registration from 1.30 onwards)
(The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.)
£20, cheque payable to 'UK Environmental Law Association'. (Students and King's College London staff may attend for free).
