Yael Lifshitz

Speaker bio

Yael Lifshitz is a leading voice in energy law and policy, and in property law and theory. Her research explores the diverse set of rules and institutions that govern access to resources, with a particular emphasis on energy governance. In her latest project, for example, she unearths the new energy governance that has emerged due to fundamental shifts in the generation of electricity in our world today.

Before joining The Dickson Poon School of Law, Dr Lifshitz was an Associate in Law and Lecturer at Columbia University in New York. Previously, she served as advisor to the Environmental and Energy Law LLM program at NYU Law School, and a clerk on the Supreme Court of Israel, to both Hon. Deputy Chief Justice Rivlin and Hon. Justice Vogelman. Dr Lifshitz earned a doctorate and masters in law from NYU School of Law, where she attended as a Vanderbilt Scholar, and a bachelors degree, magna cum laude, from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

This is an in-person event with tea/coffee and biscuits served prior to the beginning of the seminar.

Net Zero Interdisciplinary Seminar Series

The Net Zero Interdisciplinary Seminar Series is the flagship seminar series for King’s College London’s Net Zero Centre, providing a platform for cross-pollination between academia, industry and government to develop novel research projects to achieve Net Zero.

Every month, we host a speaker to discuss a new research idea and seek contributions from audience members on a proposed challenge. A half-hour talk is followed by a discussion, and we encourage speakers to engage with colleagues on research related to our four priority areas, decarbonisation, sustainable manufacturing, equitable resource allocation and resilient infrastructure.

About us

The Net Zero Centre at King's is dedicated to addressing the challenges of decarbonising our society and reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing, infrastructure, and cities. It serves as hub for scientific, technological and engineering research geared towards this challenge.

Based in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical and Engineering Sciences (NMES), the Centre works across the boundaries of disciplines at King’s from geography and business to law and social science to deliver solutions for sustainable development. The Centre fosters the next generation of King’s change-makers by educating scientists and engineers on the holistic context of these challenges and developing technologically aware social scientists, lawyers, and policy makers.
