World Environment Day

Since 1974, World Environment Day has been celebrated every year on 5 June, engaging governments, businesses, and communities to focus on pressing environmental issues.

The law has a transformative role in addressing environmental issues, and this year the Law Society is holding a CPD seminar, focusing on environmental regulation and reform.
