Climate Science and Litigation: It’s Gettin’ Hot in Here
Late last year, the LPR team presented on climate change science at the Asia-Pacific Judicial Conference on Environmental and Climate Change Adjudication in Myanmar. We’re not scientists, why not stick to what we know?

Well, climate change is coming and it’s coming to a court near you. Climate litigation in Asia and the Pacific will grow and it  will increasingly emerge as an issue during environmental and other litigation. Awareness of the science will be important for understanding the nature of cases in your docket and for resolving litigation.
