The case will be heard by Justice Nicola Pain (NSW Land and Environment Court), Justice Rachel Pepper (NSW Land and Environment Court) and Associate Professor Tim Stephens (Sydney Law School). The advocates will be senior students from the Sydney Law School (Elizabeth Pearson, Eric Shi and John Tsaousidis) and expert evidence will be given by Dr Paul Marshall (University of Queensland), a leading expert in applied conservation science and a specialist on the impacts of climate change on coral reefs.
