Careers in ESG (Environmental Social Governance) Law

Careers in ESG (Environmental Social Governance) Law
Thursday, June 6, 2024 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Over the past decade “ESG” – environmental, social, and governance – has become a popular business catchphrase. As employees, customers, and corporations are increasingly interested in the social implications of their work, many companies have adopted ESG programs and policies. To support those companies, there is a growing demand for attorneys with relevant expertise. Indeed, countless law firms now market themselves as having “ESG law” practices. But what exactly is “ESG law”?

Far from being a unified practice area, ESG involves many varied sub-fields. Lawyers interested in this space may focus on areas such as energy law, compliance law, corporate law, and procurement law. What background might you need to practice in ESG? What entry-level job experiences offer the best learning opportunities? And how can you position yourself to grow in this emerging field? This panel will make ESG more concrete and offer practical tips for career success.
