Questions of environmental justice, the climate crisis, biodiversity and resource management are among the defining issues of our time.
The law, litigation and legal process have a fundamental role to play in shaping the debates, policy development and decision-making in these areas. The balance struck by the law and policy between environmental protection and economic considerations has never been more topical. Against that background, FTB's specialist team of environmental lawyers has created the Environmental Law Blog (ELB). Blog posts will be posted on this page, and you are encouraged to subscribe to be notified of new posts and keep abreast of developments in this evolving field.
The ELB seeks to provide insights, updates and commentary on developments in environmental law and policy. From the Environment Act 2021 to climate litigation, from ground-breaking domestic and international cases to developments in environmental policy, ELB endeavours to cover the issues that matter most for those working in, and affected by, environmental law. Since the launch of the ELB in 2021, we have covered a wide range of topics, from drought to net zero; from statutory nuisance to single use plastics, on the latter of which the blog has been cited in a House of Lords debate.
