After the summer's heat dome and wildfires, a growing number of clients are concerned about how climate change and rising global temperatures are impacting the practice of law in many fields. Individual lawyers may not "save the world," but they can help by understanding basic climate science, what it means for our clients' rights, and the role that the law plays in addressing the climate crisis.
Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 5.5 hours (this course will contain a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
