Why join?

UKELA is the community for anyone interested in the place where law and the environment meet. From practitioners to students, we are a group of
like-minded people working together to promote a better understanding of environmental law and its impact on the world around us. But don't just take our word for it...


"UKELA has a small but dedicated and adept staff team. Whilst the work the Trustees do is all from a charitable and non paid basis, it's always struck me how hard everyone works, to ensure that the core commitment of UKELA continues to thrive to ensure better law for the environment. the team has always been a collegiate group of people who are willing to discuss in open forum the challenges of applying environmental law. there are no egos clouding our working relations, just passion and a drive to work towards shared goals. I simply had to be involved somehow!" Warren Percival, Director at RSK Group and UKELA Chair of Trustees

"UKELA is a unique forum where all those with an interest in, expertise concerning, or a role that impacts the environment can gather to discuss how enveornmental law and policy can be improved. Its value is the breadth of membership and the spirit of friendly cooperation and common sense. We provide a valuable sounding board for policy makers, legislators, local government etc. There really are few other fora that provide all of this." Becky Clissmann, Counsel at Ashurst LLP and co-convenor of UKELA Climate Change and Energy Working Party
