The connections and tensions between the rule of law and climate change pose significant practical and conceptual challenges, and get to the heart of the role played by law in society. This conference will bring together key thinkers, including scholars, policymakers, civil society representatives, legal practitioners, judges and PhD students, to reflect on these issues.

One main session of the conference will be devoted to the work of Early Career Researchers (MPhil and PhD researchers and recent PhD graduates) in the field. The session will provide a valuable opportunity for ECRs to share their ideas in a supportive and vigorous environment and to benefit from the engaged appraisals of senior academics and practitioners.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words in length must be submitted online by 31 August 2021. Each abstract should set out clearly the issue or argument that the researcher intends to speak on at the conference.
