Launch of Climate Change Resolution

The Law Society of Northern Ireland is pleased to publish its Climate Change Resolution, outlining the role that the Society and our members can play in addressing the climate crisis.  

Earlier this year the Society established a Climate Justice Group to take pro-active steps to address climate change issues affecting the solicitor profession in Northern Ireland and to promote and enhance the role of solicitors in tackling climate change. The resolution is one of the first steps in this process.

The resolution, which can be found here, has two key strands:

* Sections 1 and 2 cover the Society’s commitments in relation to climate change, for example developing plans to reduce our carbon footprint and providing support and guidance to solicitors to make changes in their business.

* Sections 3 to 5 encourages solicitors to make changes (consistent with their professional duties and obligations) to address climate change and act in a climate conscious manner.

The Society is currently developing its Sustainability Strategy and further guidance will issue to solicitors in due course.

All queries in relation to the Climate Change Resolution or the work of the Climate Justice Group should be directed to
