Litigating Climate Change in the Civil Courts: recent developments and future battlegrounds

29 May 2024, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm


Alistair Cantor, David Welsh



Looking beyond planning challenges, recent times have seen increasingly innovative efforts to enforce climate obligations via the civil courts, in the UK and abroad. Litigators, GCs and activists are intensely focused on just what the future might hold for such claims, a question the recent BIICL Report sought to provide an answer to.

Alistair Cantor and David Welsh will review some of the exciting developments seen in UK and foreign civil courts to date, before looking forward to where we might see civil climate litigation move next and who might prove the victor on these battlegrounds of the future.
