Nuclear energy and waste

 

Australia, China and the Rest of the World

Hunt & Hunt Environment and Planning Lawyers, Maureen Peatman, Arie van der Ley and Jessica Baldwin, have contributed the Australian chapter for the Interlaw publication Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Wastes.


The publication is the second collaboration by the Interlaw network of 74 members representing 120 cities worldwide. Given the global significance of the topic, Interlaw is well placed to provide commentary. As a founding Interlaw member, with clients in Australia and overseas concerned about energy sources and waste, Hunt & Hunt acknowledges the need for such a reference.

We are privileged to be able to provide access to the Australian chapter. For further information please contact our specialist lawyers in Environment and Planning and Energy and Resources
