Lunchtime 101: Scottish Environment Court

Thursday 16 May @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

How could a dedicated Scottish Environment Court help us hold public bodies and polluters to account for environmental damage?

Join ERCS to get up to speed on what environment courts are, hear from the Chief Judge of the world’s first specialist environment court, and find out how creating one could radically transform Scotland’s access to justice on environmental issues.

With ERCS Legal Director Ben Christman, Hon Justice Brian Preston, Chief Judge of the Land & Environment Court of New South Wales in Australia, and Prof Campbell Gemmell, visiting professor at Strathclyde University Law School and author of The Clear and Urgent Case for a Scottish Environment Court.
