LEGAL EDUCATION FOR SCIENTISTS

Climate science and the law

In recent years, an increasing number of scientists have found themselves involved in legal discussions about their work, their correspondence, and their public statements. To better prepare the scientific community for these challenges, AGU and the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund (CSLDF) have put together a legal education program for the scientific community. The goal is to both give scientists a primer on the legal issues they face and to update them on legal situations currently making their way through the courts which may impact them. The program includes webinars, events at AGU’s Fall Meeting, and the ability to connect with attorneys who work on geoscience legal issues.
