Lawyers needed for good climate legislation in the South


To implement the new Paris Agreement on climate change and their nationally determined contributions into meaningful action on the ground, governments will also have to develop new policies, legislation and institutions. Gaps in local expertise mean that law and policy makers will benefit from the experience and expertise of lawyers from other jurisdictions.

In collaboration with UNEP, LRI is therefore offering governments and parliamentarians from developing nations support free of charge in the development and review of climate and climate relevant legislation. If you are a qualified lawyer with relevant practical experience and would like to join LRI’s pro bono network – please contact Pascale Bird
