Justine Thornton has an article published in the prestigious Law Quarterly Review

The article is called “With reference to the environment: the preliminary reference procedure, environmental decisions and the domestic judiciary”.  It is co written with Associate Professor Veerle Heyvaert from the LSE and Richard Drabble QC.

The article argues that only a handful of environmental cases are referred to the Court of Justice of the European Union by the domestic judiciary.   Research by the authors suggests that the judiciary are reluctant to refer cases and the article examines the reasons for this.  It also discusses the implications for the development of environmental law and suggests proposals for reform.
