The Climate Science Legal Defense Fund hosts and participates in a variety of events for scientists and the public throughout the year. These range from workshops and webinars for researchers to help them understand their legal rights and responsibilities to presentations about attacks on science and scientists.
We hold events at many scientific conferences, including the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting, and we often collaborate with organizations such as 500 Women Scientists and the ACLU.
Please contact us if you’d like us to hold a training or workshop for scientists at your organization or to request that one of our attorneys speak at your event.

AAAS Annual Meeting, February 14-17, 2019
Advocacy and Activism: Legal Issues for Scientists
Saturday, February 16, 10:30-11:00 a.m.
Marriott Wardman Park, Room 12
Join us for the session, “Legal Protection for Scientists: Overcoming Real and Perceived Barriers,” to hear Lauren Kurtz, our director, discuss how scientists are increasingly becoming more engaged in advocacy and activism with little understanding of the laws that govern their rights. Whether they work at a university lab or a federal lab, scientists must understand how to separate personal advocacy and activism from their professional roles.
ESA Annual Meeting, August 11-16, 2019
We’re pleased to be co-hosting a workshop with the ESA Policy Section, “Know Your Rights: Legal Issues for Scientists Interested in Advocacy and Activism.” More details coming soon.
