About the Just Transition Lawyering Webinar Series

The Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy invites practicing attorneys — particularly Black, Indigenous, and people of color — as well as legal educators, law students, and justice allies in the legal field to an August webinar series that will introduce Just Transition Lawyering. The webinars are designed to foster understanding of the roles and opportunities for legal actors in addressing the global climate crisis. The webinars have been developed in partnership with the Red, Black & Green New Deal initiative at the Movement for Black Lives, the NAACP Environmental & Climate Justice Program, the Journal of Law and Political Economy, and collaborators from the University of California, Irvine.

Responding to the impact of the global climate crisis on natural resources, frontline communities, human rights, and democracy, Just Transition Lawyering provides strategic and allied support to the leaders and communities anchoring and building the environmental & climate justice movement. Just Transition Lawyering works to end discriminatory and destructive practices and policies while imagining new, justice-oriented alternatives using the law and legal system. The Just Transition Lawyering webinar series explains basic concepts of climate change, racial justice, economic justice, and Just Transition Lawyering through the lens of lawyers on the frontlines. Join us, Thursdays in August! For more information, contact JTLN@gcclp.org.
