Specialist bar association for climate issues to be launched
A new specialist bar association focused on climate issues is due to be launched at a webinar this week.
Comhshaol, the Climate Bar Association, will be dedicated to pursuing pro-environmental initiatives within the Law Library and in society more widely.
The association aims to act as a think tank of environmental law expertise and as thought leaders in environmental law and biodiversity protection for the Irish legal community and for Irish society.
Inaugural chairperson Clíona Kimber SC will chair Thursday’s webinar, which will hear from distinguished speakers on the important topic of using law to defend water rights and fight water pollution.
Speakers include Rose Wall, CEO of Community Law & Mediation (CLM); Mark Thuillier, litigation associate at A&L Goodbody (ALG); and Christina Leb, senior counsel at the environmental and international law department of the World Bank.
