The Climate Bar Association is a Bar Association with three interconnected objectives:
Pursuing practical green and environmental initiatives within the Law Library and surrounding neighbourhoods, for example planting and landscaping for pollinators and reduction of plastic and achievement of energy efficiency. This ties in with the Law Library’s own green status as well as outreach to the community in Dublin 7.
Being a think-tank of environmental law expertise and thought leaders in environmental law and biodiversity protection for the Irish legal community and for Irish society. This will support the Bar of Ireland’s public service objectives as well as raising the profile and highlighting the expertise of the Bar externally.
Enabling members to use their expertise to support NGO’s and other litigants to engage in environmental advocacy and litigation where relevant. This supports the Bar’s pro-bono commitments, and also opens up and supports areas of work for our members.
Comhshaol, the Climate Bar Association is a specialist association of the Bar of Ireland which aims to act at the forefront of environmental justice and law in Ireland and to become a thought leader of climate law expertise in Ireland.
