Class Actions Committee (Lead)


SustainabilityFocusWhere there is an apparent failure of governments, corporates and other "entrusted" institutions to act in the best interests of the community as a whole, the law and in particular class actions emerge to seek to hold those responsible to account. This session will take the temperature of the current state of global climate change class actions and try and look over the horizon at the next wave of climate change litigation.

SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
