Here's a video of a recent workshop led by CSLDF attorneys Lauren Kurtz and Augusta Wilson, and held in collaboration with 500 Women Scientists DC and the Union of Concerned Scientists. The presentation is meant to help scientists from all disciplines understand their legal rights and responsibilities, and how to handle different legal situations.
We’re pleased to announce that the recipient of our 2018 Defender of Science Award is Andrew L. Frey, Senior Counsel at Mayer Brown. Please join us on Thursday, November 8 to honor Andy and celebrate his contributions to our mission and the protection of science at a dinner and award ceremony at the Penn Club in midtown Manhattan.
August 16 was the last day for public comment on the “science transparency” rule proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which would prohibit the agency from taking many scientific and medical studies into consideration when making policy decisions that impact human and environmental health. The EPA received nearly half a million comments on its controversial proposal. Among them were comments we at the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund submitted explaining our opposition to the rule.
On Tuesday, July 17, the Environmental Protection Agency is holding a public hearing on its proposed "transparency" rule, which would restrict the use of science in agency decision making. Augusta Wilson, one of our staff attorneys, will attend the hearing and speak about why the EPA must rely on the best available science.
