DS Director teaches law school course on ‘Climate Governance and Citizen Justice’ at Mon
DS Director Scott Leckie taught a new law school course at Monash Law School in Melbourne, Australia from 19-23 September 2016 on ‘Climate Governance and Citizen Justice’. This new course examines all recent developments on climate governance since the successful conclusion of the Paris Climate Change talks in December 2015, with a particular focus on climate justice for people negatively affected by climate change. A flyer on the course is available here: Climate governance and citizen justice. The course was honoured to host Victorian Supreme Court Justice Kevin Bell who gave a guest lecture on the role of international law within the Australian legal system, as well as the links between climate change and human rights law – thank you Justice Bell! The students were highly motivated and excellent in every respect – thanks to everyone who took the course this year!
