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. You can read our constitution here.

The EDO has finalised it's law reform priorities paper for the upcoming election. We believe our proposed reforms will if implemented substantially improve our environmental protection laws and public participation in decision making.
