Climate Law and Governance Day, co-organised by the University of Glasgow and GCILS, the University of Cambridge and the University of Strathclyde is a global symposium taking place at the University of Glasgow on the 5th November, during the COP26 Climate Summit. CLGD 2021 will feature an intense programme of over 16 in person and online sessions hosted by international organizations, country delegations, foundations, law associations and firms, law faculties and many other leading climate law and governance actors.
The event provides an important point for the global climate law and governance community to meet, share ideas and build new innovative collaborations to tackle climate change and implement the Paris Agreement across international and domestic regulation, climate litigation, legal scholarship, and commercial practice circles.
CLGD 2021 also features the Climate Law and Governance Global Leadership Awards 2021 and International Climate Law and Governance Student Essay Contest 2021 Prizes, recognizing negotiators, general counsel, and distinguished practitioners, academics and civil society leaders, also outstanding students, for their contributions to the global legal response to climate change.
An evening reception with excellent networking opportunities will be held at the Hunterian Gallery after the main event, please register here. Although all are welcome to attend both, there is no need to register for the full day to attend the evening reception.
