Activity: Academic and Industrial events › Conference, workshop or symposium
This workshop was concerned with how environmental law has been taught at UK universities. Environmental law has been an optional module and there are very few variations in the module content between different law schools. However, this legal discipline is facing emerging legal issues which are not reflected in the traditional curriculum across the UK. Moreover, almost 80 per cent of UK environmental law derives from EU environmental law and it is expected that the impact of Brexit will be particularly profound in this area. Thus, the aim of this workshop was to discuss these challenges and provide recommendations on how to best modernise the course syllabus.
