ABA Urges Pro Bono Work for Climate Change Action
The American Bar Association (ABA) recently adopted a resolution urging attorneys to take on a more active role in pro bono work for climate change.
"The science has become more compelling since the last time the ABA officially adopted a resolution on climate change, so we felt it was appropriate to update it," Environment Partner Amy Edwards said.
Ms. Edwards served as chair of the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) that developed the climate resolution. She presented it to the ABA House of Delegates on Aug. 12, gathering enough support that it passed without opposition.
