XI Strathclyde Postgraduate Colloquium on Environmental Law and Governance 

Time: Thursday, 15 June 2023, 10:00-16:30 UK time

Venue: Room CW404 a & b, Cathedral Wing (199, Cathedral Street, Glasgow G4 0QU) 

Strathclyde Law School and Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance 

Call for Abstracts – New submission deadline: 15 March 2023

This Colloquium provides an opportunity for Post Docs, Ph.D., MPhil and LLM students engaged in research on global environmental law and governance to present and discuss their work, or a part of it, in a supportive atmosphere. It also provides an opportunity for students researching any area related to environmental law (who may not be presenting) to meet and network with other peers and experts working in this area of law. 

The 2023 Colloquium builds on the success of the previous ten colloquia, which saw researchers from a wide range of countries, present their research on topical areas of environmental law and governance. Leading environmental law academics acted as discussants, providing the researchers with insightful comments and feedback. In the 2023 edition, after regaining post-Covid normality, the Colloquium will be held as a hybrid event on Thursday, 15 June 2023. 

Accepted presentations will be divided into thematic sessions chaired by a member of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance. Each presentation will last 15 minutes, followed by ample time for debate introduced by comments from the discussant. 

Presentations covering any topic of global environmental law and governance will be welcome. However, we especially welcome any contributions regarding legal developments such as allocating legal personality and rights to non-humans, ecosystems, and Nature at large

The submission deadline has now been extended! 

Submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to scelg@strath.ac.uk by 15 March 2023. Please state ‘SCELG XI Colloquium – Abstract Submission’ in the subject line of the email with your submission.

Programme: A detailed programme with selected speakers and discussants will be published in April. 

Venue: University of Strathclyde Campus, Room CW404A&B. This event is a hybrid event. Access to the colloquium sessions will also be provided on the zoom platform of the University of Strathclyde. Registered participants will be given details in due course.
