Scientist have proven that the world is threatened by climate change, which will have a significant impact on environment, economy and societies worldwide. As a consequence, many states have taken different steps to face the challenge of climate change. In this ongoing process of reconstruction national law plays an important role, because it can provide opportunities or reduce them. Therefore, the conference focused on the different challenges legal systems are currently facing when protecting the climate and preparing for climate change. The conference topic was addressed by academics of great renown who represent different legal systems from all over the world. On 3 November 2022, they deliberated on matters regarding climate protection with legal instruments.
