With its third annual installment, the Berlin Climate Law Conference once again brought together experts from the legal discipline and other stakeholders to engage in a discussion on the legal dimensions of climate change. In doing so it responds to the growing significance of law as a framework for operational climate policies and stable, reliable carbon markets.

In 2010, the conference focused on the state of international climate policy after the latest negotiating sessions in Bonn, Germany, and provided an updated assessment of domestic policy developments in three key regions: the European Union, the United States, and China.
Participants learned about the legal relevance of the Copenhagen Accord and the role of alternative negotiation venues, discussed the state of international carbon markets, and obtained first hand briefings on how the three foregoing powers aim to achieve mitigation both domestically and internationally. A panel discussion drew on these presentations to assess the prospects for a negotiating breakthrough at the climate summit in Cancún in late 2010.
