The Chancery Lane Project is a collaboration between barristers, solicitors (in house and private practice) and academics to create the legal conditions needed to achieve net zero carbon emissions. The Project aims to invent the new contracts and model laws to help communities and businesses shift to renewable energy, reduce energy usage and create new carbon sinks.
The Project’s focus will be on lasting impact: plans are in place for a legal ‘hackathon’ on the Friday (8th) of Pro Bono Week, from which the Project will produce a Green Paper of new model laws and a Climate Contract Playbook. The playbook, an accessible collection of free precedents, will help align business with the environment.
The Project will be professionally and politically neutral, encouraging new ideas from all corners of the legal landscape. The Project needs lawyers from all specialisms, corporate, tax, finance, real estate, human rights etc and no climate change knowledge is required.
UK lawyers can pledge time at the hackathon and submit ideas via the Project’s website, www.chancerylaneproject.org
