Climate litigation: Funders, litigators, responders
March 29, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AWST
Climate change litigation garners a lot of attention and is changing business activity. In this online session, the Piddington Society in conjunction with NELA, bring together a funder, litigator and responder to climate litigation to consider the impact of climate change litigation, where it is heading and current issues in this area of law.
In 2021, Alan Schwartz AM, a former lawyer, revealed that he has been funding strategic litigation through the Grata Fund, particularly on climate change matters. A former lawyer, he will contribute this discussion sharing his perspective as a funder of litigation and will be joined by human rights lawyer Maria Nawaz (Grata Fund) who conducts this litigation. Lucy Shea (HWL Ebsworth) will consider the responses to climate change litigation and their impact on business decisions. Lea Hiltenkamp (National Environmental Law Association; HFW) will chair this session and lead the discussion.
Attendees will be eligible for 1 CPD point in CA4 (Substantive Law).
