Climate Transition in Europe: The Legal Issues (The European Circuit Webinar)

Celina Colquhoun will be speaking at this webinar, hosted by The European Circuit of the Bar, being held on Earth Day (22nd April).

The UK is hosting COP 26 in Glasgow in November 2021. The race to net zero is now on and time is fast running out. Concerns are increasingly raised about whether the law is doing enough to achieve carbon neutrality, especially with the potential for divergence after Brexit. Some would also question whether there is a need to recognise rights of nature. In this webinar, the panel will discuss climate litigation in Europe, considering the implications of Brexit, and, critically, what can and should be done now to transition to net neutrality.

The event is chaired by The Honourable Ms Justice Niamh Hyland, with speakers:

Advocate General Michal Bobek: speaking on Climate Litigation in the EU

Marc Willers QC, Garden Court Chambers: speaking on Trends in Climate Litigation

Celina Colquhoun, 39 Essex Chambers: Speaking on Brexit's Implications on Environmental Law

Paul Powlesland, Garden Court Chambers: Speaking on Rights of Nature

Date and Time

Thursday 22nd April, 5.30pm - 7pm
