The Pro Bono Response to Climate Change

Pro Bono Guide to the Climate Crisis

The Australian Pro Bono Centre has published a Pro Bono Guide to the Climate Crisis.  This is a great resource to find out how pro bono lawyers can help tackle the global climate crisis.

“This informative and inspiring publication describes the many ways that lawyers and the legal profession can dedicate their extensive expertise, experience and resources to tackling the climate crisis… Ultimately, climate change is not just about science or technology. It’s about justice. The legal profession has a moral obligation to stand up and join the movement for a cleaner, greener, healthier future.”

Dr. David R. Boyd, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment

  • descriptions of 15 different ways that lawyers can get involved in pro bono work to help combat the climate crisis
