In November 2016 Arnika (Prague) hosted a visit of young students of law from Centre for Environment (Banja Luka). Their visit is a part of the project of Environmental law clinic which aims to educate young lawyers in the topic of environmental law and support their involvement in local cases. During a 5-day training in the Czech Republic the students visited several institutions and local cases.
