Hackathon for the Planet? Why not join us on 8 November



Join the first ever Chancery Lane Project Hackathon

The LSA is proud to be a partner in The Chancery Lane Project which was conceived at an LSA event in Climate Action Week in July and launched formally at the LSA Climate Strike Week breakfast on 25th September. This joint initiative is being supported by The Law Society, Client Earth, Law with Ethics and is led by Matt Gingell, General Council at Oxygen House.

The Chancery Lane Project is the code name for the focused and collaborative effort of UK lawyers to develop new contracts and model laws to help fight climate change by means of a ‘hackathon’ to be held on 8 November 2019 . The project has four stages

  • Convene and inspire a diverse range of lawyers from across the profession to focus on climate change issues and solutions
  • Co-create and publish ideas for new model laws, regulation and policy in a “Green Paper”.
  • Publish a “Climate Contract Playbook” of precedent clauses to help businesses fight and prepare for climate change.
  • Disseminate, promote and track the clauses and model law created to bring about change and ensure lasting impact
