Executive Director and Associate Professor, Environmental Law Centre, UVIC
Focusing on land use law, Deborah has extensive experience advocating for environmental protections and sustainability. While working with local governments and advocating for smart growth, ecosystem integrity is always ELC's primary goal. The ELC offers free legal research and representation to community organizations, conservation groups, and first nations. It also offers clinical training in public interest environmental law to students through the University of Victoria's Faculty of Law.
Deborah Curran will give us an overview of what types of projects they work on and has invited a student to accompany her. Should be an excellent opportunity to learn about the incredible award winning law research they do.
