This event, hosted by the universities of King’s College London, Strathclyde and York in association with the Clinical Legal Education Organisation, draws its inspiration from the “adaptation” theme of COP26.
A panel of students and other expert contributors will translate this theme into the student law clinic context, with a view to framing activities for the 2021 Student Law Clinic Global Day of Action for Climate Justice (which takes place on 17 November 2021). The panel will reflect on COP26 and afford an opportunity for student law clinics to consider the contrast between the global conversation and local actions. A keynote address will be provided by Alex Goodman, a barrister with Landmark Chambers.
This free, online event will feature contributions from students and academics at the three host law clinics, but we also invite contributions from other law clinics who are able to showcase good practice or recent successes in case work or campaigning in relation to the “adaptation” theme. Those interested in contributing should set out how their activities have been directed to avert, minimise or address the loss and damage that is already occurring from climate change, and send details of that to firstname.lastname@example.org before 09.00 [UK time] on Monday 18 October 2021. Please note that it may not be possible to feature all correspondents in the event on Tuesday 3 November, but we will endeavour to ensure a broad representation of both clinics and ideas.
Event details will be circulated to those who register the day before the event.
