One-on-One Availability With an Attorney


Event Details

This event finished on 17 December 2015


In recent years, an increasing number of scientists have found themselves involved in legal discussions about their work, their correspondence, and their public statements.

To better prepare the scientific community for these challenges, AGU and the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund have provided an opportunity for you to have a private meeting with an attorney who works on science litigation.

These brief consultations will allow you to ask any legal questions regarding your scientific work. Email lawyer@climatesciencedefensefund.org to set your appointment. Appointments are available in 30-minute time slots from 8:00AM – 3:00PM Monday through Thursday.

This event is part of an ongoing Legal Education for Scientists program, which AGU and the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund have put together to help educate the scientific community on legal issues. The goal is to give a primer on the legal issues facing scientists and update them on legal situations currently making their way through the courts.

This event is open to all AGU Fall Meeting registrants.
