The six-minute format is uniquely suited to a focused, zoned-in overview of the latest developments in environmental law. We cover the key cases and policies with the highlights you need to know about: from climate change and health, to analysis of excess soil management legislation, and significant amendments to the brownfield/RSC regime. Finally, we've added a session on environmental compliance during COVID-19.
