IV UCL-KCL Postgraduate Environmental Law Symposium

The fourth Postgraduate Environmental Law Symposium jointly organised by University College London (UCL) Faculty of Laws and King’s College London (KCL) Dickson Poon School of Law will be held on 25 February 2016 at King’s College London.

The symposium provides postgraduate students working in the area of Environmental Law and Governance with the chance to meet and present their work in a supportive, subject-specific forum. The symposium will provide the opportunity for up to sixteen research students to present on any aspect of their research. The symposium this year will offer two types of presentations: oral presentations and poster presentations.

The symposium organisers are keen for the event to allow students to meet and network, while strengthening a postgraduate environmental law research community. We actively encourage attendance from research students at all stages of their postgraduate work. We also invite LLM students, academics and undergraduates interested in environmental law to come along. Lunch and refreshments will be provided during the day, followed by a drinks reception.

Those interested in presenting in any area of Environmental Law and Governance are invited to submit an abstract, indicating whether it is intended for oral or poster presentation, of no more than 200 words by Friday 30 October 2015. The authors of abstracts selected for presentation will not be expected to submit completed papers but they may do so if they wish.

The symposium is made possible by generous funding from the Dickson Poon School of Law, the UCL Centre for Law and the Environment and the UCL Faculty of Laws. Presenters in need of financial support are invited to make contact with the organisers to discuss coverage of travel expenses.

Venue: Dickson Poon School of Law King’s College London, Somerset House East Wing, Strand, London WC2R 2LS
