Joining law and science in a conference with integrated masterclass is a unique opportunity of facilitating inter-generational, multi-disciplinary discourse to identify a global climate consensus amongst the next generation in the legal professions and beyond. Climate change is an unprecedented challenge to humankind. It represents one of the great risks that the next generation faces when we hand the planet over.

The Dundee Climate Conference with integrated masterclass brings together climate change experts from academia and practice in law with experts from geoscience research and PhD students, LLM and MSc students. This creates an opportunity to better understand the interlinkage of legal research and scientific research as a basis for climate action and climate education. Climate action encompasses timely regulatory action to prevent a further increase of the global mean temperature but also litigation to improve mitigation of and adaptation to changing climate conditions. Law and science speak different languages when discussing crucial concepts which are highly relevant for both, decision making to further address climate change in policy and law and also tracing accountability for severe weather events and slow onset events.
