Senior Lecturer Dr Victoria Jenkins represented the College of Law and Criminology by presenting on the implications of Brexit on Environmental Law at a Conference this month.

The conference is an annual event for those responsible for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) to discuss current issues. This year, the The Protected Landscapes Chairmen’s Conference “Landscape post Brexit” focused on the implications of Brexit for landscape protection.

The event, held in London on 24th November, was attended by academics, MPs and the Chairman and Chief of the National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Victoria addressed the implications of Brexit on Environmental Law, building on the wider reach of the research she has been doing in landscape law.

She said: "Brexit will have important implications for landscape management particularly in terms of agricultural policy and environmental law. It has potential for new connections to be made between issues related to natural and cultural heritage. These issues have been explored by the speakers at this conference today."
