Sharon Turner has been appointed a Visiting Professor to the Law faculty, and will have a special connection with the Centre for Law and the Environment.  Sharon was Professor of Environmental Law at Queens University Belfast, but in June of this year joined ClientEarth to lead their Climate and Energy Programme. As the head of Client Earth’s climate and energy team she leads a group of 13 lawyers located in offices in London, Brussels and Warsaw working on a range of law and policy reform and litigation projects spanning EU and national governance levels.   Richard Macrory commented, “We are absolutely delighted that Sharon will be associated with us through this appointment.  For many years she has been one of the leading UK environmental legal academics but is now bringing all her expertise and experience to a significant new role."
