EP. 96 – The Model Contract Clauses for Human Rights Project The Hearing – A Legal Podcast

    • Business

Devoted listeners to The Hearing will be familiar with the work of The Chancery Lane Project – which helps lawyers use contracts to fight climate change. This episode is about using a similar concept to tackle modern slavery and other human rights abuses.

Becky speaks to Olivia Windham Stewart and Sarah Dadush about their work with the American Bar Association to help improve the human rights performance of contracts and supply chains. They talk about how supply contracts often inadvertently increase human rights and environmental risk, by being too onerous.

This episode shows how you can be an ally to this cause, and make a meaningful difference, simply by reviewing the supply contracts used by your firm.

Guests:

– Olivia Windham Stewart, Business & Human Rights Specialist

– Sarah Dadush, Professor of Law at Rutgers Law School
