Ruth Chambers OBE appointed Honorary Professor at UCL Centre for Law and the Environment

1 September 2022

The UCL Centre for Law and the Environment is pleased to announce the appointment of Ruth Chambers OBE as Honorary Professor of Practice.

Ruth Chambers

Ruth is Senior Fellow with Green Alliance, an environmental think tank. She has been a crucial part of Greener UK, a coalition of major environmental groups (hosted by Green Alliance), which was at the heart of the environmental community’s response to Brexit. Greener UK, and Ruth, continue to play a key role in the community’s work on the implementation of the Environment Act 2021. She was awarded an OBE in 2022 for her services to the environment.  

Working with government and parliament as an NGO actor involves an exchange of expertise for access and influence; Ruth’s understanding of the legal, institutional and policy issues in the environmental sphere is impressive, as are her skills of persuasion, engagement and collaboration.  

Ruth's profound expertise and experience in parliamentary and government affairs will be invaluable to the Centre’s research and students, and the Centre is delighted to have Ruth join them.
