Abstract

Environmental advocacy groups have a long history of using courts as a forum for promoting social and policy change.1 Climate change has been an emerging frontier for strategic environmental lawsuits of this kind over the last decade, with a focus on how court action can assist efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change impacts.
