Young environmental lawyer of year

The Society congratulates Ms Revel Pointon, a member of the Society’s Council, on being invested with the 2018 Mahla Pearlman Award for the Australian Young Environmental Lawyer of the Year.

A citation on the website of the Environmental Defender’s Office mentions her “dedication to constructive community engagement” and her reputation for being “pragmatic, considerate, and tireless”.  These attributes have already been fully manifest in her service with Society, less than a year old. We salute her!
