Corporate Climate Litigation: Lessons Learned, Comparative Perspectives and Future Pathways (in person participation)
Date: 11th May 2023
Time: 16.00 - 17.30 (UK time) | In person registration from 15.30
Venue: Online and in person at BIICL, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Sq, London WC1B 5JP
BIICL's project on Global Perspectives on Corporate Climate Legal Tactics examines the unique aspects of climate litigation across the corporate world and will lead to the production of a toolbox for the effective implementation of climate law. The project team is conducting a comparative analysis across 17 legal systems, in collaboration with National Rapporteurs from those jurisdictions and an international expert group of eminent individuals in the field of climate law. The global toolbox will be presented during an event at the UNFCCC COP28 in Dubai.
The event will provide expert analysis and discussion of this critical field of research and practice, with the participation of members of the BIICL Climate Change Law team and of the Core Group. The experience from other disciplines and areas of litigation will provide the opportunity to examine valuable lessons to be learned for more effective corporate climate litigation. In addition, there will be an opportunity to discuss some comparative perspectives from relevant legal systems (China, France, UK and USA) and future pathways for climate litigation involving businesses.
