Facing Legal Attack: Scientists Tell Their Stories

Ticketing Type:Free to Registrants
Join us for a brown-bag lunch with a panel of scientists who have experienced legal repercussions for their scientific work. Andy Dessler, Katherine Hayhoe, Michael Mann, Naomi Oreskes, Ben Santer, and Kevin Trenberth will all share their stories regarding legal issues and answer your questions. An attorney from Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) will moderate the discussion and offer insight from a legal perspective.
This event is part of an ongoing Legal Education for Scientists program, which AGU and the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund have put together to help educate the scientific community on legal issues. The goal is to both give a primer on the legal issues facing scientists and update them on legal situations currently making their way through the courts.
