Environmental Law 2021: Climate Change Law and Litigation: A Rapidly Evolving Landscape


This panel will discuss recent climate change developments in the U.S. and globally, including recent Biden Administration developments, trends in the private sector, evolving voluntary and mandatory climate risk reporting frameworks, and recent litigation aimed at driving decarbonization. We will also examine the role of carbon offsets and sequestration and the opportunities they present, with emphasis on both the private and public sector. Finally, because agriculture and forestry are important economic sectors in Tennessee and are poised to play a substantial role in addressing climate change, we will discuss the Growing Climate Solutions Act, which recently passed the U.S. Senate, and its implications in Tennessee.

A good foundation course if you're new to environmental law.

Great summary of these legal issues regarding climate change! The presenters covered a huge amount of material very clearly and succinctly. I learned a lot about the developing standards for climate change/ESG related disclosures and other developments. Well done!
