About the Student Division of the Centre of Environmental Law and Policy (CELP)

Cardiff University’s Student Division of the Centre of Environmental Law and Policy (CELP) is a dynamic student-led offshoot of the research centre. The division is currently led and administered by postgraduate researcher Jade Jones alongside the Student Steering Committee. Established in October 2022, the division hopes to foster an engaging student research community within Cardiff School of Law & Politics, to that end the division met regularly each month over the 2022/23 academic year to discuss recent developments in environmental law and policy and collaborate on research projects. Student CELP also hosted several events.

Student CELP has returned in Autumn 2023 following the summer break and is currently in the process of welcoming new members. Plans for the year ahead include a student steering committee to support the administration of the division, a student editorial team to review written output and a social media editor. Upcoming projects include new blog posts and plans for an annual research digest to be published in Spring 2024. The annual Student CELP Winter Conference will also return later this semester. To keep up to date with all Student CELP activity please see the Student CELP blog page and events page.

Student CELP Annual Winter Conference 2023

The Student Division of the Centre for Enviromental Law and Policy (Student CELP) warmly invites all students and staff in Law&Politics to our upcoming

Student CELP Annual Winter Conference on the 14th of December, 4:00 pm – 5:30pm in SPACE room 0.24 LAWPL.

The Student CELP Winter Conference was first launched in Dec 2022 and returns this year by popular demand with a host of new presentations. The conference is a fantastic showcase of the latest ongoing research within Cardiff University’s environmental law and policy department by leaders in the field. The conference is also an excellent opportunity for staff and students to network within an engaging and lively atmosphere, and a fun way to round off the academic semester.

The conference entails several presentations from staff within the School of Law and Politics, sharing insights from their research on various environmental law and policy issues. Each presentation will be followed by a short Q&A with the audience.

Currently we have the following speakers confirmed, and hope to confirm more over the next few days;

Mr Guy Linley-Adams on his recent BBC panorama exposé ‘The Water Pollution Cover Up

Dr Richard Caddell on ‘Principles for the Protection of the Environment in Armed Conflict’

Prof Ben Pontin on ‘Environmental Legal Themes’
