Global Litigation to Fight Global Warming
Free Public Lecture
Theatre G08, Ground Floor
Melbourne Law School
185 Pelham Street, Carlton
As the effects of climate change become more prevalent, groups and individuals have begun to demand responsibility from governments and companies. Indeed, climate-change related matters are being brought to courts around the world, with over 1000 such cases being logged by the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law.
Join us at the Global Law Students Association's biannual Global Thinking Lecture Series to hear Greens Co-Deputy Leader and Spokesperson on climate change, Adam Bandt, speak about the growing field of litigation and regulation to help stop global warming.
Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
This event is organised by the Global Law Students Association, Melbourne Law School’s foremost student association with a focus on international law and global opportunities. Our aim is to foster an environment that challenges and prepares students to think, work and live as active global citizens. We aspire to enable Melbourne Law School graduates to become attuned to cultural diversity and to develop a broad global understanding.
