The Lawyers for Planet Earth

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 29 May 2017

Meet the lawyers for Planet Earth, James Thornton and Martin Goodman.

Instead of protesting, they founded a legal charity called Client Earth to take on environmental issues. They've taken on everything from whaling to European Fisheries policy to Air Quality issues. Thornton and Goodman explain how their army of lawyers are taking on governments and winning.
