Brexit and environmental law

8 April 2017

Richard Macrory is co-chair of the UK Environmental Law Association’s Brexit Working Party. UKELA was neutral on the Brexit referendum, but is working to ensure the UK environmental law is not jeopardized following the UK’s departure from the EU. Former DEFRA lawyer Rosie Oliver and barrister Joe Newbigdin have been employed by UKELA to research on environmental law issues, and the Faculty has kindly provided them with desk space over the next six months. This month the first newsletter outlining current activities has been published. Brexit Newsletter.
