What would you change about the law if you could? This was a question we put to a range of legal professionals - from practising lawyers to former judges, academics and legal commentators - inviting them to reimagine an area of the law or of our justice system, and share their thoughts with us.
Reimagining Environmental Law
The world faces unprecedented, existential environmental challenges; during the last fifty years environmental law and policy, both as a discipline and in practice, have taken great forward steps albeit this progress is clearly not enough. Shifting the current trajectory depends on humanity's ability to embrace technology, including artificial intelligence and data sciences, implement existing policies, and invent new legal and regulatory tools.
Following a workshop with Client Earth and The Alan Turing Institute on 'Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and the Law: Reimagining the New Roots of Environmental Law' , we are now moving to an interdisciplinary 'Reimagining Environmental Law', phase of the Reimagining the Law project. We are inviting legal and scientific experts to look across the horizons of science, policy, law and regulation, and consider what has to be done to improve environmental protection.
