In this session, we will give an overview of the Centre for Climate Engagement’s programme of work focused on law for climate action. We will explain why we see the legal world as an important part of the net zero transition and how we have been engaging with lawyers, academics, students, and business stakeholders on this topic. We will also outline a research project and forthcoming online resource that aim to map how climate change intersects with various areas of law.
About the organisers:
The Centre for Climate Engagement focuses on bridging gaps between academia and industry to enable climate action with a focus on law, governance, and organisational change. As the secretariat of the Climate Governance Initiative, the Centre helps to drive climate action on corporate boards across the world. Seeing similar potential for change in the legal sector, it is increasingly focused on building capacity amongst lawyers to drive the net zero transition.
