The environment's legal team since 1992 - protecting the public interest - evening the odds

The EDO is an independent community legal centre specialising in public interest environmental law. We offer professional legal advice and (in a small number of cases) representation, law reform and policy work and community legal education.

The EDO defends the environment in a way that no other organisation can - as the environment's legal team! However, our services are at risk due to Federal government funding cuts. You can help support our work by becoming a member or donating to the EDO.

Seminar: What role does the community have in environmental decision making?

The EDO will be launching it's recent audit of public participation provisions in South Australian legislation which directly and indirectly impact on environmental decision making. The report identifies deficiencies and makes recommendations for law reform. We will also be presenting case studies on two particular areas of regulation namely planning and mining.

Speakers include EDO staff solicitor Melissa Ballantyne, Alison Brookman (Wallmans Solicitor) and Associate Professor Karen Bubna-Litic (University of SA).
