Centre for Law and Environment


4-8 Endsleigh Gardens, Bloomsbury, London, WC1H 0EG.

Jointly organised by University College London (UCL) Centre for Law and the Environment and King’s College London (KCL) Dickson Poon School of Law. To provide postgraduate students working in the broad area of Environmental Law and Governance the chance to present their work in a supportive, subject-specific forum, the joint organisers will hold a postgraduate research symposium on Wednesday 7 November 2012. The symposium will afford up to ten research students the opportunity to present on any aspect of their research.

The organisers are keen for the event to allow students to meet and network, in the hope of fostering a postgraduate environmental law research community and the establishment of reading groups. We actively encourage attendance from research students at all stages of their postgraduate work.

The symposium is made possible by generous funding from UCL Centre for Law and the Environment, and there is a budget to subsidise the travel costs of speakers. Lunch and refreshments will be provided during the day, followed by a drinks reception.

Those interested in presenting a paper in any area of Environmental Law and Governance are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 200 words by Monday 3 September 2012.
