Climate Change Litigation Workshop

The Lincoln Centre for Environmental Law and Justice recently collaborated with Warwick Law School to host a seminar in Warwick on Climate Change Litigation, with contributions from academics, practitioners and activists. Discussing recent developments in such diverse jurisdictions as Australia, South Africa, The Netherlands, UK, United States, and Norway amongst others, the seminar explored the opportunities, emerging strategies and challenges of climate change litigation.

Professor Duncan French and Professor Louis Kotze, Marie Curie fellow at Lincoln Law School, both contributed papers to the seminar.

Professor French noted that “it was a remarkably informative day – how quickly climate change litigation is being picked up in jurisdictions, challenging States and corporations. There is more to do but there is a lot of encouraging developments”.
