•Analyse litigation in the area in light of recent judicial decisions. 
Applications are encouraged from solicitors working in the areas of conveyancing and planning and environmental law, trainee solicitors and students seeking to expand their knowledge on the area of study, Barristers who practice in the area of environmental law, civil servants and those working within a local authority in environmental and planning departments and other suitably qualified professionals.
