The Reading Group

The Climate Law and Governance Reading Group is a student-led initiative that aims to provide a forum for reflective and critical interdisciplinary discussion on climate law and governance for climate specialists affiliated with King's. Through monthly readings and group discussions, participants are invited to engage with topics that lie beyond, but are related to, their areas of expertise. The aim of the reading group is to investigate legal and governance frameworks from various disciplinary perspectives and challenge participants’ assumptions and ideas in a constructive way. The group also serves as a networking platform for climate researchers affiliated with King’s, allowing potential collaborators to meet and exchange ideas. Click here for all upcoming and past reading groups.

The Dickson Poon School of Law Visiting Professors

We are delighted to host The Dickson Poon School of Law Visiting Professors in Climate Law and Governance who are world leading researchers in the field. These Visiting Professors deliver lectures in our Series, as well as contribute to Faculty seminars and events.
