The planet earth from space

Our mission is to grow the next generation of impact lawyers who will advocate for and champion a rapid and just transition towards a truly sustainable and inclusive economy.

Our work will not end until the just transition has been achieved – and all lawyers are impact lawyers. We cannot do this without you. We are building a community that supports lawyers to have a positive impact on people and planet through their work.

All members will be able to share knowledge and benefit from networking opportunities. Through our programming and member platform, the community shares market intelligence and discusses the latest legal developments affecting businesses in the impact economy. 

As a member, you will be connected to your peers across the globe. You will have the opportunity to attend regular global and regional events to hear about the innovative, interesting and impactful work lawyers like you are engaging in. At all levels, members are able to vote for, and be elected to, their regional board.

GAIL is a democratic organisation. Each voting membership will be held by an individual lawyer who will designate the region they are attached to: Africa*, Asia Pacific, continental Europe, Latin America, North America or the United Kingdom.

Votes can be used to elect members of the relevant GAIL regional board at the time of elections. Each corporate member is able to assign its votes to lawyers working at their firm or organisation. Where corporate members have multiple offices, they may wish to consider the geographic spread when allocating their voting memberships to their lawyers.

* We hope to establish the GAIL Africa regional board within 2022-23.
