Climate Law and Governance at King's

What Lawyers can do about climate change

lawyers-event-a_685x280In November 2016, King's hosted and co-organised a high-level workshop on 'What Lawyers can do about Climate Change', along with A4ID and Allen & Overy.

This event sought to widen the discussion about the role of lawyers in relation to climate change, beyond their obvious roles in public interest litigation and advising on international law developments.  The workshop covered aspects of both non-contentious and contentious legal practice and considered how climate change is becoming, and will become, a mainstream issue for lawyers of all legal sub-disciplines.  

The briefing paper from this event explores these issues is more detail and is available for download from this page. You can also listen to the interview with two of the workshop participants - Sharon Turner (ECF) and Jake White (Friends of the Earth) - reflecting on lawyers' roles in relation to the pressing social challenges of climate change.
