Hybrid event: in-person at the Lady Hale Moot Court at 8-10 Berkeley Square, Bristol, or online via Zoom.

Join us to celebrate the formal launch of the new University of Bristol Centre for Environmental Law and Sustainability – and the book launch for ‘Regulating the Sea’ (Cambridge University Press, 2022) by Professor Margherita Pieraccini – on 21 September 2023.

The launch event will introduce the new Centre, led by Professor Margherita Pieraccini and Professor Elen Stokes, its goals and objectives, and the diverse expertise of the Law School community researching across domestic, EU and international dimensions of environmental law and sustainability.

Following this, the book launch, co-hosted by the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, will feature an introduction from Professor Pieraccini and presentations from discussants Professor Vito De Lucia (UiT, Norway), Dr Richard Caddell (Cardiff University), and Professor Daniela Schmidt (University of Bristol).

The first book written on English marine conservation regulation from a socio-legal perspective, ‘Regulating the Sea’ provides an in-depth analysis of key aspects of Marine Protected Areas regulation in England, forging connections between environmental law and regulatory scholarships on the one hand and human geography, environmental sociology and other environmental social sciences on the other.

To attend this hybrid event please register for a place via Eventbrite.
