About this event

A look at climate litigation for future generations with host, Dr. Sara Seck, Associate Dean of Research (Schulich School of Law).

Climate change is happening now. While careful planning for adaptation to climate change can reduce harm, there are increasing examples of climate loss and damage to people and planet both in Canada and around the globe. How can climate law and human rights approaches to litigation help to reduce and remedy climate harms for present and future generations to come?

Our panelists:

  • Charlotte Hobson is a JD candidate at the Schulich School of Law. Before law school, she studied environmental geography at the University of Toronto. She is primarily interested in environmental justice issues and the uneven impact of environmental crises.
  • Siobhan Quigg is a JD/MPA student at Dalhousie University. Her interests include human rights, climate law, and legal ethics.
  • Unwana Udo (LLM'20) is a research associate at the Marine and Environmental Law Institute, Dalhousie University. His areas of research interests are climate and environmental law including climate change and human rights; climate justice; climate litigation; climate-oceans governance; and sustainable development.
