The Avosetta Group is a small informal group of lawyers whose main purpose is to further the development of environmental law in the European Union and Member States. "Avosetta" is the Latin name of a rare bird which caused the European Court of Justice to establish far reaching principles of European Nature Protection Law in the German Dike-Case. The group held its inaugural meeting at Bremen University in January 2001.
