Paul is a civil barrister, environmental activist and storyteller
Paul is a civil barrister, environmental activist and storyteller who is shaking up what it means to be a lawyer in a time of environmental crisis.
After practising as a barrister in London for a decade, Paul realised the urgent need to create greater respect and protection for the natural world within our legal system. He therefore founded Lawyers for Nature to represent the natural world and all who are seeking to defend it. He writes and speaks on legal rights for the natural world, as well as representing the natural world (including trees and rivers) in the courts as best he can within the current legal framework. He has a natural affinity for water, lives on a boat and has founded a community project to restore a river in East London.
