On Monday, November 18, 2019, law students and faculty at 12 law schools across Canada joined together to engage in a day of learning and research on law and policy related to municipalities and climate change responses. The research-a-thon was organized by Osgoode’s Environmental Justice and Sustainability Clinic and Windsor Law’s Cities and Climate Action Forum. The teams were linked virtually throughout the day. Each team had a discrete set of questions to complete. The results will be edited and compiled, and made available online for use by municipalities and community partners across the country. The event was timed to coincide with the Global Law Clinics Day of Action on Climate Change.
