Climate Defense Project

Climate Lawyers for the Climate Movement

The climate movement needs climate lawyers. Climate Defense Project fills a gap in the legal landscape by supporting front-line activists, pursuing climate impact litigation, and connecting attorneys with communities and campaigns. CDP’s three co-founders and staff attorneys are recent Harvard Law School graduates. As law students, they brought the first fossil fuel divestment lawsuit and since graduating have continued to work toward a stable climate for future generations.
