Master Class in collaboration with the Global environmental Forum

Why sustainability matters for lawyers? IBF was invited by the Global Environmental Forum to give a lecture to law graduate students at Meiji Gakuin University. The lecture aimed to build capacity on future lawyers on existing sustainability regulatory frameworks and trends in higher education for sustainable development. Key impact sustainability lessons are as follows:

  • Lawyers need to further build their capacity on sustainability regulatory frameworks and be able to apply those in practice
  • Higher education institutions should integrate a sustainability component in existing curriculums to educate future leaders with ethical and environmental values
  • Sustainable Development 10 (SDG 10): reduced inequalities should be considered as a high priority in higher education agenda for sustainable development
