Legal Education for Scientists

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 (CSLDF) have put together a legal education program for the scientific community. The goal is to both give a primer on the legal issues facing scientists and update them on legal situations currently making their way through the courts. The program includes webinars, events at AGU Fall Meetings, and the ability to connect with attorneys who work on geoscience legal issues.
