 PRINCIPLE 6 – Education & upskilling 

All staff across the legal profession

The working group is now up and running with representatives from Ashurst, Clyde & Co (Chair), DWF, GowlingWLG, Simmons & Simmons and Taylor Wessing.

The working group currently envisages the need for a four-tier education, upskilling and training programme

  • Entry level literacy training for all
  • Online resources / scenarios-based training on TLS Guidance for lawyers
  • Climate competency training for lawyers from a legal perspective
  • Climate competency training for lawyers from a client/sector perspective

The next phase will see the working group

  • mapping out the education and training requirements across all four tiers of learning envisaged,
  • identifying those resources that have already been created or in the public domain, and then
  • develop a create plan to plug the knowledge and content gaps.

The working group will look to connect with all the membership bodies for the legal profession to identify where we may all collaborate on knowledge and content gaps and how best to make the materials available to all members in an accessible and consistent manner.

Get Involved

Almost all human activities which have material impacts on the climate either directly or indirectly involve the legal sector. Therefore, the sector has a vital part to play in leading transformational change to mitigate climate change. We are looking for new signatory firms to contribute to these important conversations.

In addition to looking at methodologies that we could potentially adapt, such as GFANZ, this group is talking to academics about commissioning a piece of research.
