Standing up for the environment for 40 years

Standing up for the environment for 40 years

By Carolyn Ford

Environment Environmental Protection 


The LIV’s environmental law group has been contributing to environmental law since 1979. A letter in the Law Institute Journal was the catalyst for the first and most influential environmental law group in Australia. Writing in mid-1978, Douglas Hill, then deputy director of the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF), asked where were the lawyers who cared about the environment and would come to its aid as they had in other countries? The letter spoke directly to the Hon Simon Molesworth QC, then a 24-year-old articled clerk at Blake & Riggall (now Ashurst Australia), and most recently an Acting Justice with the Land and Environment Court of NSW, Australia’s most senior specialist environment court.
