Climate Defense Project

The climate movement needs climate lawyers. Climate Defense Project fills a gap in the legal landscape by supporting front-line activists, pursuing climate impact litigation, and connecting attorneys with communities and campaigns. CDP’s three co-founders are recent Harvard Law School graduates. As law students, they brought the first fossil fuel divestment lawsuit, Harvard Climate Justice Coalition v. President and Fellows of Harvard College. Since graduating, they have continued to fight for a stable climate for present and future generations.
