Our participation at the 2020 PILnet Global Forum aimed to showcase our research project Teaching Environmental Law for Policy Engagement and Impact.
This project is funded by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and the Higher Education Authority.
We acknowledge the invaluable support we received from Conference UCC, Audio Visual Media Services UCC and the PILnet team in preparing for and delivering our session.
