Abstract: 

Legal personality has been recognised in four different legal systems, including civil and common law systems, on different continents. Each occurrence has been achieved in a slightly different way, with each being a product of historical circumstance and practical realities more than of legal principle. Catherine will discuss these 4 different examples and how they implement a “Rights of Nature” approach and/or one of human responsibility for it. She suggests that rights – including rights for nature – are useful tools, but also that tools which impose or implement collective responsibility may be even more useful.

Prof Iorns is also a national board member of Amnesty International Aotearoa New Zealand and the Academic Adviser to the NZ Council of Legal Education.
