The Role of Private Law and Private Enterprise in Combating the Climate Change

  • 6:10PM to 7:30PM
  • Room 129

Several American cities and counties have in recent years filed lawsuits against the big oil companies, including Exxon Mobil. The claimants argue that oil giants knew about the disastrous effects of burning fossil fuels back in the early 1980s, willingly engaged in the campaigns of misinformation, and should bear the costs of the calamities caused by the climate change. How will these lawsuits fare? Is tort law an adequate instrument to seek justice? Join us on the evening of 30 January to discuss the matter with the leading experts in the field.
