Voices from the Community

Conversations on the impact of pro bono on environmental protection at the grassroots

Wednesday 3rd November 12pm to 1pm

As part of this year’s National Pro Bono Week, ELF’s online event will be in conversation with some of the grassroots communities that ELF has worked with. Hear from them about the impact of the pro bono assistance they received from the ELF professional pro bono network and learn what the tangible impact has been on nature protection. ELF works with grassroots communities and we want to share their stories about the intersection between campaigning and the law and how pro bono has assisted them. The professional ELF pro bono members who assisted each community will be present to discuss how their case was built and developed.

In conversation with Emma Montlake of ELF will be Matt Gilks (Thrings), long time ELF solicitor member talking about the assistance he provided to the Friends of Fishermans Walk campaign group, the friends group represented by Debs Compton. We will also have Ray Pearce, claimant in the Development Consent Order challenge to the Vanguard Windfarm (a windfarm development off the coast of Norfolk) talking to Michael Brett, Barrister at FTB and ELF chambers member who assisted in the Vanguard case.
