BREXIT represents a major challenge for the future of UK Environmental Law. Professor Richard Macrory has been appointed co-chair of the UK Environmental Law Association’s Brexit Task Force – its immediate task is examining how EU environmental law has been integrated into the national system, and the extent to which the “Great Repeal Bill” (expected in May) is able, in the interests of legal stability, to achieve its objectives of rolling over EU law until the opportunity is taken for review and reform.
With that in mind, UKELA is now seeking to appoint a research assistant to assist its Brexit legal specialist for an initial 6 month period and possible extension for another 6 months. The post would be suitable for an recent LLM graduate or young practitioner with an interest in environmental law, and offers a wonderful opportunity to be at the heart of a most critical period in the development of UK environmental law, and help secure its future. Deadline for applications 25 January 2017. Details at Research Assistant JD for UKELA Brexit Task Force final 2
