Pre-COP21 event takes stock of UN negotiations, non-state climate change action & climate adjudication

Yesterday, the Transnational L aw Institute at King’s College London hosted a public event on the state of law as it relates to climate change in the weeks ahead of the UNFCCC Conference of Parties in Paris.

Dr Eloise Scotford spoke on the legally disruptive nature of climate change and the recent ‘Adjudicating the Future’ symposium on climate change and the rule of law. I spoke on the current state of the UNFCCC negotiation and the implications for the legal profession of the growth of climate initiatives by non-state actors such as cities, businesses and investors.

A write-up of the event is online here.
