About The Chancery Lane Project

Who we are

The Chancery Lane Project (TCLP) is a collaborative effort of lawyers from around the world whose vision is a world where every contract enables solutions to climate change.

What we do

Together, we create new, practical contractual clauses ready to incorporate into law firm precedents and commercial agreements to deliver climate solutions.

We then work with lawyers to ensure effective and impactful implementation of the clauses, across industries, practice areas and jurisdictions.

We have launched our Net Zero Toolkit, a collection of clauses and tools which enable lawyers to align their work with a decarbonised economy, and a safe and habitable planet for us all.

Our core principles

  • Independent of any professional body or practice
  • Politically neutral
  • All our publications are free to use
  • Collaboration and cross fertilisation across sectors
  • A safe space to innovate, as drafting is unattributable to individual firms or lawyers

How you can get involved

  • Join one of our weekly onboarding calls
  • Attend our drafting events
  • Train as an event facilitator
  • Become a peer reviewer
  • Use the clauses in your daily practice

Find out more about how you can help us and take part.

Change the precedent, change the world!
