Seminar and Roundtable Series
Each year, we organise a series of guest seminars and roundtables that brings to Strathclyde colleagues who share with us their unique perspective on topical global environmental law and governance issues. The seminars and roundtable are usually held in term time and are open to students and to the general public. Some of the seminars are recorded and can be viewed on our Youtube channel.
