Welcome the member area for the Circular Economy Law Community of Practice. You can learn more, connect with others and you can collaborate on research projects, commercial partnerships and policy reform initiatives.

Next-Generation Professional Practice

The Circular Economy Law, Policy & Practice Masterclass is designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the demand and supply-side laws, and policies which both enable and obstruct the Circular Economy (CE) and to build capacity for participants to advise corporations and public bodies on establishing the enabling conditions for the CE and in the design, technology implementation and practice of circular production and consumption frameworks. The Masterclass engages a trans-jurisdictional approach spanning CE policy progress in Europe, UK, US, Canada, Australia, Africa, Asia & the Caribbean. Participants will gain clarity regarding legal context for production, consumption, waste management, use of secondary raw materials. CE innovation, procurement and investment strategy will be examined with reference to the latest, most path-breaking circular economy case studies from around the world.
