No Ordinary Lawsuit: The Saga of Juliana v. The United States

October 24 @ 2:40 pm - 4:00 pm

Can our courts protect our climate from our government?

Can the voice of youth overwhelm that of the fossil fuel lobby?

This constitutional climate lawsuit filed by youth asserts that, through the government’s affirmative actions that cause climate change, it has violated the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property, as well as failed to protect essential public trust resources.

Join Law Professors Margaret Russell, Tseming Yang, Students of LAW 103: Torts, & co-lead Counsel for the Plaintiffs Philip Gregory JD/MBA ’80 for an exciting discussion of this case and its dramatic progress.

Free and Open to the Public. This event ends at 4pm.

Seating is limited. Reservations are recommended at scu.edu/turn by October 20 at noon.

If you require an accommodation please phone Kristin Kusanovich at (408) 554-5542 48 hours in advance of event.
