Jessica A. Wentz
Columbia Law School

Jessica Wentz is a non-resident senior fellow with the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School. Her work at the Sabin Center has spanned a variety of topics related to climate change mitigation and adaptation, sustainable development, human rights, and environmental justice. Her current research focuses on the role of climate science in litigation and administrative processes — and in particular, how different types of scientific evidence can inform legal obligations on the part of both government and corporate actors to control greenhouse gas emissions, prepare for the effects of climate change, and compensate for climate damages. She has a J.D. from Columbia Law School, a B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles, and an LL.M. in Energy and Environmental Law from the George Washington University Law School.
