Access to Justice: Lawyer database

As part of the Life Access to Justice for a Greener Europe project, ClientEarth and Justice & Environment have gathered details of legal experts across Europe. Each holds expertise in the field of environmental law. We hope the below resource will enable campaigners and concerned citizens alike to start conversations and collaborate, to improve access to justice in environmental matters for all.

Are you a public interest lawyer based in the EU? Join our online database by getting in touch.
