Home > Seminars > Webinar – What’s happening? Environmental law in the UK from 31 December 2020

This webinar has now taken place. You can find the presentation slides and a link to the webinar recording in our resources tab or by clicking here.


Landmark Chambers and Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday 24th June, 2020 at 5pm – 7pm.

The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020. The Government has insisted that there will be no extension to the transition period. The future relationship between the UK and the European Union is uncertain and COVID-19 has diverted many resources from preparing for the end of the transition period. However, the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, the laws of the Single Market and enacted and emerging legislation from Westminster and in the devolved administrations are ‘known knowns’.

From 31 December 2020 the United Kingdom will cease to have its own single internal market. It will no longer be subject to the common overarching framework of EU environmental law, the so-called level playing field or operate within the regulatory regimes of the Single Market. What will fill these spaces? We’ve identified key areas affecting businesses and organisations. On 24 June our webinar will look at what we know will happen, what might happen and how to prepare: please join us!

Places will be complimentary and speakers include Claire Brook – Chair (partner, Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP), David Elvin QC, James Maurici QC, Stuart Wardlaw (Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP) and Sarah Holmes (Legal Director, Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP).

**This event will be hosted as a webinar. Participation is free of charge however, advance registration is required. Please note that participants will receive the joining instructions by email prior to the webinar.**
