Bech-Bruun lawyer contributes to Chinese environmental law analysis
Anne Sophie K. Vilsbøll, Senior Associate, has agreed to contribute to an environmental law analysis conducted by a Chinese university. The aim of the analysis is to promote focus on the environment in China.
Through the pro bono network Trustlaw Connect, of which Bech-Bruun is a member, Anne Sophie K. Vilsbøll has undertaken to prepare the Danish report to be used in a comparative analysis of environmental regulation in a number of countries.
The analysis will be part of a large-scale project aiming to promote awareness of the environment in China and, in particular, the handling of cases on pollution by the administrative authorities and the courts.
The project is headed by Zhang Zhongmin, a researcher and assistant professor at the Environmental & Resource Law Institute (ERLI) of Zhongnan University of Economics and Law. ERLI is a Chinese research institute working on promoting focus on China's environmental legislation to the benefit of China and its population.
"I find it to be a project of great interest, and when the pro bono network Trustlaw Connect contacted us, I knew right away that this would be a great opportunity. The project serves a higher purpose, namely that of enhancing general knowledge of the environment and the rules applicable to its protection. This is certainly a project that I'm pleased to be part of", Anne Sophie K. Vilsbøll says on the pro bono project.
