The Oxford Sustainable Law Programme (SLP), launched in 2021, is a rapidly-growing, world-leading hub for research, education, and engagement at the intersection of law and sustainability. We see the law as a tool to catalyse the sustainability transition. Our work is multidisciplinary and informed by practice. We are impact-oriented thinkers who leverage the law in novel ways to advance sustainability outcomes.

Led by Thom Wetzer, the SLP's work currently focuses on four themes: Science and the law, systemic lawyering, climate risk governance, and net zero commitments. In addition to producing cutting edge research in these areas, we also educate the leaders of today and tomorrow and engage actively with governments, the private sector, NGOs, and beyond to translate our insights into impact.

Housed at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, the SLP is a partnership with the Faculty of Law and the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford.
