Environmental law

Scottish Environment Protection Agency


Probably one of the best designed official sites: contains all sorts of up-to-date material, an education section, and interesting historical statistical data. Guidance on the legislation, sorted by sector, in Scotland and Northern Ireland can be had on sister site NetRegs: www.netregs.org.uk. Meanwhile, www.sepaview.com is SEPA’s online magazine providing environmental news, features and analysis.

Environment Agency


The equivalent to the Scottish site: lots of free and useful information and data.

The Scottish and the English Campaigns are separate and have their own sites, both of which contain a lot of information about the work of the Campaigns and a limited amount of information about the legal issues.
