Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance

It is with great sadness that we share the devastating news about the sudden passing of Dr Emily Webster, Assistant Professor in Environmental Law in the Department of Land Economy and a Fellow of CEENRG. Emily will be remembered as an outstanding academic, a deeply insightful scholar of environmental law, and a passionate and caring teacher. This is a terrible loss for our community, particularly sharply felt by the students in our Centre and in the Department of Land Economy whom Emily taught and supervised with such care. Emily will be sorely missed by all her family, friends, students and colleagues.

We express our condolences to everyone who knew Emily. You can read tributes to Emily written by the Head of Department of Land Economy, Professor David Howarth, and Queens' College, where Emily was a Fellow. A book of condolence is available at the reception in the Department of Land Economy, as well as online.
