Professor Duncan French, Head of Law School and Co-Director of Lincoln Centre for Environmental Law & Justice, has recently been involved in a number of international projects discussing contemporary issues of environmental law.
Professor French has recently been appointed to a United Nations technical advisory group to advise UN Environment (UNEP) and the UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) on environmental crime. The group met recently in Turin to consider a draft UN report and will be attending an intergovernmental meeting of 84 states in September to discuss the issue further.
Professor French also provided the keynote address on environmental caselaw at a workshop of experts at McGill University, Montreal. He has also contributed to a major new book on sustainable development jurisprudence in international courts and tribunals, recently published by Routledge.
