Climate Justice and Climate Litigation in the US and the EU: Comparative Perspectives

February 1 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

Courts in the US and EU are being asked to adjudicate cases related to climate change. Some of the challenges to address a cross-border issue like global warming are the same on both sides of the pond. But differences between judicial systems mean that US and European courts also face their own unique challenges. Hear a lively discussion of the comparative legal systems as it relates to climate law between Alberto De Franceschi, professor of law at the University of Ferrara in Italy, and UCLA Law professors William Boyd and Cara Horowitz.

Lunch will be provided to those who RSVP and attend in person.

Please contact Heather Morphew, morphew@law.ucla.edu, with any questions.
