“Sometimes my work for ClientEarth means I’m on the ‘frontline’, raising legal arguments with decision-makers; sometimes I can only bask in reflected glory when our work has been behind the scenes. But whenever change happens for the better, however it happens, I appreciate just how rewarding it is to work at ClientEarth.”

Catherine Weller
