Description

Harvard Law Professor Richard Lazarus will speak about his new book, The Rule of Five: Making Climate History at the Supreme Court (Harvard University Press, March 2020). The Rule of Five tells "the gripping inside story of how an unlikely team of lawyers and climate activists overcame conservative opposition -- and their own divisions -- to win the most important environmental case ever brought before the Supreme Court."

Richard Lazarus is the Howard and Katherine Aibel Professor of Law at Harvard University, where he teaches environmental law, natural resources law, Supreme Court advocacy, and torts. He has represented the United States, state and local governments, and environmental groups in the United States Supreme Court in 40 cases and has presented oral argument in 14 of those cases. His primary areas of legal scholarship are environmental and natural resources law, with particular emphasis on constitutional law and the Supreme Court.
