Net Zero Drafting: Corporate Governance – The Chancery Lane Project

From 1st – 12th November, and throughout Pro Bono Week and COP26, we are running a 2021 Net Zero Toolkit Workshop Series, which includes events across a number of key themes: built environment, corporate governance, finance, supply chains and transactions and deals.

In this free and collaborative Net Zero Drafting workshop, you will:

  • Learn about ‘net zero’ and what this means for contract drafting. Importantly, you will learn how to use contracts to ensure that targets and emissions reduction requirements align with the Paris Agreement and science based goals of limiting global temperature increase to 1.5℃.
  • Hear about lawyers and organisations from all over the world who are using the power of contract drafting to embed their climate commitments into their value chain. 
  • Build your own plan of action for using and implementing climate clauses in your business or practice, as part of your work towards net zero or more generally as you align your work with climate and environmental considerations.

The workshop is open for both in-house and private practice lawyers of all PQE. Register at the link below.

Pro Bono and Environmental Justice – LawWorks, A4ID and Environmental Law Foundation

The right of citizens to challenge environmental decisions through legal redress routes, and being able to access appropriate legal information, support and services on environmental law issues is fundamental to achieving any notion of environmental justice.

Evidence of the disproportionate impact of environmental degradation and climate change on vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, including those living in poverty, highlights the link with social justice; the law, domestically and globally. The law can be a tool to effect and inform solutions but is rendered useless without effective access to environmental justice. This principle is enshrined in international obligations such as Aarhus Convention which applies to the UK, although there is no significant enforcement mechanism.

Coinciding with UN Climate Change Conference (CoP 26th, Glasgow) the 20th year of pro bono week is looking at the ‘big picture’ on the past and future challenges for pro bono. This session hosted by LawWorks, the Environmental Law Foundation and A4ID will discuss the contribution that pro bono can make, and its limitations, at community level to environmental justice, (e.g., flooding, planning, nuisance issues, environmental hazards) but within a global context that understands environmental law as deeply connected with development, human and social issues. 

Panel includes:

  • Wessen Jazrawi, Hausfeld
  • Emma Montlake, Environmental Law Foundation
  • Matt Hunt, PGMBM
  • Richard Owen, Hilary Rodham Clinton School of Law, Swansea

Voices from the community – Environmental Law Foundation

“Voices from the community; conversations on the impact of pro-bono on environmental protection at the grassroots”

This year the Environmental Law Foundation (ELF) event will be in conversation with some of the grassroots communities that ELF has worked with.

Hear from them about the impact of the pro bono assistance they received from the ELF professional pro bono network and learn what the tangible impact has been on nature protection. ELF works with grassroots communities and we want to hear their story about the intersection between campaigning and the law and how pro bono has assisted them.

The professional ELF pro bono member who assisted the community will be present to discuss how the case was built and developed.

Registration details to follow.
