The Climate Justice Clinic

The Climate Justice Clinic gives students practical experience of a wide range of legal work in a number of commercial law practice areas (public law, administrative law, human rights, environment and planning law) with an overarching focus on climate justice. Students work with leading Australian environmental organisations, senior barristers working in Environment and Climate law, community organisations and campaign groups, and collaborate with community legal services throughout Victoria. The Climate Justice Clinic also helps students contextualise the clinics’ legal work within the broader climate justice movement, and features regular guest speakers from public and private sector law firms and environmental NGOs.
