The Hon. James Allsop AC to deliver an evening talk on ‘Climate Change, Policy and Arbitrability’ for the CIArb East Asia Branch


6:30 pm HKT

The Harcourt Suite, The Hong Kong Club, Jackson Road, Central, Hong Kong

The Hon. James Allsop AC will deliver an evening talk on Wednesday 19th June for the CIArb East Asia Branch.

The talk, titled ‘Climate Change, Policy and Arbitrability’ will focus on legal liability in sovereign courts for emissions of carbon and related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. One issue of some importance in those cases has been the justiciability in courts of complex government policy for GHG emission control. The question arises as to how responsibility for GHG emissions will filter down into arbitrations. In that context questions of arbitrability may arise as questions of justiciability arise in sovereign courts. This and the nature of the claims for legal responsibility will be discussed.

In-person places are limited and free for CIArb members.
