Climate litigation is increasingly gaining ground and becoming a legitimate way to hold the largest polluters accountable for climate change-related damages. A case in Hawai’i has recently moved forward to the discovery phase. There are more than 20 cases working their ways through US state and federal courts. And climate litigators have won cases against Shell in the Netherlands.
CSLDF and the Union of Concerned Scientists invite you to a webinar on expert engagement in climate litigation. Join Delta Merner, PhD, of the UCS Science Hub for Climate Litigation, Lauren Kurtz, JD, of the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund, Jim Hilbert, JD, of the Expert Witness Training Academy, and Florencia Ortúzar Greene, JD, an attorney with AIDA, as they discuss how to engage in the courts as a climate expert.
Date: Wednesday, April 6
Time: 1:00–2:00 p.m. ET
Attendees of the webinar will:
- better understand ways that scientists can engage with the climate litigation process,
- learn about the role of scientists in climate litigation,
- connect with the Science Hub and the resources it offers, and
- interact with the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund.
