Harj Narulla, co-lead of the Climate and Environmental Justice Group; Visiting Senior Fellow in climate law at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics; Honorary Research Associate in climate law at the University of Oxford.

Eran Sthoeger, Adjunct Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, Counsel for Timor-Leste

Harj Narulla will chair a discussion with four leading experts in climate law and public international law on the highly consequential Advisory Opinions on climate change currently before the International Court of Justice, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. Panellists will consider the Advisory Opinions individually and collectively, and reflect on the ways in which they will frame climate litigation in domestic and international fora in coming years.
Each expert has been closely involved in the ongoing cases. Harj Narulla is instructed and working across each of the three Advisory Opinions. Professor Angelet was instructed by the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the Advisory Opinion proceedings on climate change before the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. Eran was instructed in the same case by the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, and Maria Antonia is an expert in climate change litigation, and has published widely on the Advisory Opinions, with a particular focus on the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
