Lawyers for Climate Justice Australia

Member Profile

Lawyers for Climate Justice Australia is a network of lawyers, barristers, legal academics and law students who are exploring ways the legal system can be harnessed to address the climate crisis. We support collective action at the local level to achieve our purpose and objectives. The more voices we have, the stronger our call for climate justice.

We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, for whom climate change is but another chapter in a long history of destruction and dispossession. We acknowledge that the laws and customs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations cared for the Australian continent and islands for more than 60,000 years. Our laws must continue to protect this land and its inhabitants, in the future.

We are committed to understanding and addressing past injustices that have contributed to the climate crisis and ensuring that First Nations people and vulnerable communities lead the movement for change.

Lawyers for Climate Justice Australia is not a legal service or law firm. We do not provide legal advice.

Make Your Change acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we live, play, advocate, and activate.  We acknowledge their continuing connection to Country and community, and pay our respect to Elders past and present. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians.  We are committed to honouring their unique cultural, and spiritual relationship to the land, air, waters and seas—as well as their rich contributions to society. We acknowledge the sovereignty, land, and law of First Nations were never ceded—this always was and always will be the Land of First Nations people.
