To mark the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the UNECE Convention on Access to Information,
Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters – the
Aarhus Convention, our seminar this year will reflect upon aspects of the Convention, and some
future challenges, and in particular its implementation and effects in Ireland, while addressing all three pillars of the Convention, there will be a particular focus on Access to Justice.

We are honoured to have the Hon Mr. Justice Frank Clarke, Chief Justice and also Dr Áine Ryall,
UCC School of Law and Vice Chair of the Compliance Committee of the Aarhus Convention as
chairs, and speakers and chairs from the European Commission, the legal profession and the
eNGO community.

The event is targeted at environmental decision makers from across Government Departments
and State Agencies – such as the EPA, An Bord Pleanála, the offices of the OCEI, OCI, Ombudsman,
the Attorney General and CSSO; the judiciary and legal profession, academics, interested members
of the Oireachtas and our own eNGO community.

The law seminar will conclude with a small reception, and an opportunity to engage up close and
personal with native birds of prey, silent witnesses to the actual purpose of environmental law.

Please ensure you email separately Attracta@ien.ie if your family wish to enjoy the birds display while you are at the seminar or after, in order to arrange a pass, as we need to manage numbers.
