EDO Insider MCPD seminars

As the acknowledged expert in public interest environmental law, EDO NSW is pleased to be offering three professional development seminars in March 2018 covering mandatory fields for lawyers – Substantive Law, Professional Skills, and Ethics and Professional Responsibility – in the context of public interest environmental law both in Australia and internationally.

 

All funds raised from these seminars go towards our core work of helping the community to protect the environment through law.  We are very grateful to our pro bono partner McCabes for hosting these events.
