Edinburgh student wins Colin Donald Award for Environmental Law 2014
Michaela Schwedeler, a current student on the LLM in Global Environment and Climate Change Law, has won this year’s prestigious Colin Donald Award for Environmental Law 2014 which is offered by the National Trust for Scotland in partnership with the University of Glasgow.
This is a wonderful achievement. Congratulations to Michaela on her hard work.
Michaela won the prize on the basis of an LLM essay in European Environmental Law entitled ‘What would the value be of explicitly incorporating a human right to a healthy environment into the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union’.
The annual Colin Donald Award was launched in 2008 by the National Trust for Scotland charity, in partnership with leading law firm McGrigors LLP and The University of Glasgow. The prize is given in honour of the late Colin Donald, a lawyer who had a distinguished association with the Trust, McGrigors LLP and the University, spanning a period of four decades.
The prize is a placement during the summer vacation with the legal department of the National Trust for Scotland along with a £400 cash prize.
