Ecologic Legal - the legal team of the Ecologic Institute.
Welcome to Ecologic Legal - the legal team of the Ecologic Institute.
Ecologic Legal links environmental analysis and policymaking to legal frameworks and the law-making process. Our aim is to enhance the design and implementation of environmental policy and governance.
Drawing on the expertise of a team of specialized lawyers, we advise decision-makers on all aspects of international, EU and domestic environmental law and governance. We also work closely with economists, policy analysts and environmental scientists as part of Ecologic’s interdisciplinary projects and with external organizations and policymaking institutions.
The legal team combines a strong academic background with substantial professional experience as practising lawyers and policy advisers. Our books, studies, lectures and articles in peer-reviewed journals contribute to academic and policy debates on key environmental issues. The team at Ecologic Legal also provides specialized training to German trainee lawyers.
