The [Chancery Lane] Project is the code name for the focused and collaborative effort of lawyers from around the world to develop new contracts and model laws to help fight climate change.
Our vision is a world where every contract and law enable solutions to climate change.
A world in which legal frameworks enable and encourage businesses and communities to have a positive impact on the environment.
Our purpose is to help create practical legal solutions to reverse climate change using collaborative problem solving. Rewiring contracts and laws to create new market norms for lawyers and lawmakers to use.
We are part of a global effort of legal professionals, empowering business and communities to transition to net zero emissions. We believe every lawyer can make a difference.
The project is aligned with and supports the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals relating to climate action and the UK’s emissions reduction target, enshrined in law, to reach net zero by 2050.
We do not profess to have all the answers to the climate crisis, and we are not trying to own the solutions.
From the very beginning, the project has not been about individual lawyers or firms, but rather the collective effort of the entire legal profession to make a positive impact.
Our voice is separate and independent from any one firm, chambers or professional membership. This allows a new conversation to happen and a freedom to innovate
We are, with the best of intentions, using our legal skills to accelerate solutions to climate change in a politically and professionally neutral manner.
