2018 Environmental Law Student Conference

The Environmental Law Unit invites UWE students to organise and take part in this important Conference.

Now in its 4th year the event will take place at the University of Swansea on 14 March 2018 and will be organised jointly by UoB, Cardiff, Swansea and UWE students.

We welcome student volunteers from UWE with an interest in Environmental Law (International or otherwise), Globalisation and Natural Resources to be on the committee along with UoB, Swansea and Cardiff students to organise this event and later participate, if chosen, in presenting papers to Conference. There will be an opportunity to enter a competition for the best presentation which will be judged by practitioners in leading law firms in Wales.

This is a fantastic opportunity for UWE students to add to their CV and gain invaluable experience in team-work and university collaboration.

For more information please contact Elena Blanco, Associate Professor of International Economic Law, and get involved.

Future of the Commons

Posted on

Elena Blanco, Associate Professor of International Economic Law, would like to invite you to take part in a roundtable event on the “Commons” organized by the Environmental Law Research Unit at Bristol Law School, UWE on 28th February 2018, 1-6pm (room 3S803).

The keynote speaker will be David Bollier, an internationally well-known commons speaker and activist. Margherita Pieraccini  (UoBristol); Yoriko Otomo (SOAS) and Philippe Karpe (CIRAD) will offer a brief 15 minute reflection on the theme of the ‘Future of the Commons’, either responding to David’s contribution, or taking the thinking in a new direction informed by their own experience and scholarship.

The aim of the event is to have a stimulating discussion that brings new intersections between commons activism, praxis and scholarship, and pushes thinking in new directions, potentially.

Places are strictly limited. Please contact Elena.Blanco@uwe.ac.uk if you would like to take part.
