It provides an opportunity for the dissemination of information on the latest legislative and judicial developments, research results and evolving best practice in the areas of Environmental Law, Planning Law and Natural Resources Law.  It also provides a truly unique forum for the exchange of ideas among key figures and stakeholders on all sides of the environmental protection debate.
