UKELA Annual Conference – Speaker’s Corner
In recent years, we have offered students the opportunity to speak at our Annual Conference in the ‘Speaker’s Corner’ slot, a 10 minute platform to raise your profile speaking to all the conference delegates on any environmental topic you chose.
So, if there's an environmental issue that keeps you up at night or you have a passion or experience about the natural world you would like to share, keep your eyes peeled for news about when to apply for the 2023 Conference.

Interested in co-authoring a hot topic article with a
environmental professional? We provide opportunities for students to publish
their work in our members' journal, e-law, circulated to over 1500 practitioners. Please submit a short (less than 500 words) abstract for

article should be written with the assistance of a practitioner in that field.
Articles can be on the e-law issue theme or on any topic related to
