Our mission is to conduct strategic legal research that mitigates existential risk and promotes the flourishing of future generations, and to build a legal community that shares these concerns.
Our primary goal is to conduct strategic research that can be used by key actors—for example, policymakers, judges, and litigators—working on the world’s most pressing problems. Our research currently focuses on mitigating existential risk and promoting the flourishing of future generations.
We aim to raise awareness about our concern for the long-term future and build a global legal community that shares this concern. We want to bring together researchers and policymakers at every level of seniority and support the most effective ways to use the law to protect future generations and mitigate existential risk.
