Law

  • Rights of Nature
  • Honoring People, Planet, and Profit
  • Advice and support


Earth law is the emerging body of law to protect, stabilize, and restore the functional interdependency of Earth life and life-support systems at the local, bioregional, and global levels. Earth law may be expressed in constitutional, statutory, common law, and customary law, as well as in treaties and other agreements both public and private. It includes rights of future generations, rights for nature, movement lawyering, Indigenous legalities and the development of a new ecological social contract.

Earth law is both an extension of and a radical departure from environmental law as it is presently practiced.
