Who we are
Wild Law UK is run by an elected steering committee of volunteers that manages the daily operations, strategy and projects. There are also many other supporters who contribute to the work of the group on regular or ad hoc basis

Christian is a law lecturer at a London university. He worked in German higher education and private practice, was a member of FoE legislative affairs working group and contributed to the nuclear litigation that knocked off Mülheim-Kärlich plant.
