Overview

Catherine Caine is a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Exeter with research interests in environmental law, planning law, and energy law. Catherine’s research projects include an analysis of whether the European legal requirements of habitat protection have been integrated and coordinated into the planning and construction processes for offshore renewable energy, a comprehensive review of the extent to which the courts in the UK consider scientific evidence in Habitats Directive decisions, and an analysis of the regulation of heat networks in the UK. Catherine has also recently been the PI of an interdisciplinary research group analysing the way in which taxation and labelling on unhealthy and unsustainable food would change consumer behaviour in the UK.

Prior to joining the University of Exeter, Catherine has taught law at Newcastle University. Her teaching experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate level includes: Legal Foundations, Tort Law, Environmental Law, Energy Law, Planning Law, and the Law of Environmental Impact Assessment.

Research

My main research interests are environmental and planning law. Within this field, I have conducted empirical data collection in order to analyse whether the European legal requirements of habitat protection have been integrated and coordinated into the planning and construction processes for offshore renewable energy. This research has sought to determine whether any changes are required in either law or policy to ensure that habitat protection is achieved. In addition to this, I am also interested in pedagogical methods, having recently researched the way in which student law reviews have been introduced in the UK and their pedagogical benefits.
