LAWS13-127: Climate Liability and Risk Management


Climate Liability and Risk Management is an elective subject in undergraduate programs offered by the Faculty of Law. This advanced level law subject investigates the commercial implications of climate change including the implications for legal liability, litigation and risk management. As scientific knowledge and understanding of climate change and its impacts advances, businesses and governments are exploring the risks and opportunities posed by climate change, and climate change adaptation and mitigation activities. Students will examine the range of business implications including the incorporation of climate risk into business risk assessment, statutory corporate and director’s disclosure obligations, litigation and reputation risks, financial, insurance and physical risks to property / “stranded asset” risks, and emissions reporting obligations, as well issues associated with the development and operation of emissions reduction or avoidance projects. They will also evaluate approaches taken by corporates and government to stimulate investment in net zero or low emissions projects and products.
