Law Students for Climate Accountability aspires to move legal ethics and practice toward a just transition for our climate, in solidarity with frontline communities, to build an equitable and sustainable world in our lifetimes. By activating and mobilizing the power of law students, Law Students for Climate Accountability aims to transform the legal industry’s role from exacerbating climate injustice to meaningfully supporting a just transition. Law Students for Climate Accountability began with a group of law students who created the Law Firm Climate Change Scorecard, and the initiative has since grown into a movement. Law Students for Climate Accountability believes that lawyers must take action to promote environmental justice, and the project works to change the narrative around what is possible in the legal profession.
