Refusing to Work for Fossil Fuel Companies

Post by tlsadmin3 » Wed Dec 23, 2020 3:30 pm

The next generation of lawyers demonstrates greater levels of concern when it comes to climate change and divestment in fossil fuels. A group of law students in California recently created a Climate Responsibility Pledge for law firms that would require the discontinuation of taking on representation of new fossil fuel industry clients, effective immediately.

Do you find this approach effective? Do you think that pledges like this could make certain firms more desirable to candidates? Should firms take that into consideration? Share your thoughts below.
