A group called the Law Students for Climate Accountability hand-delivered a list of over 600 signatures from law students from schools such as New York University, Harvard, Yale, Stanford and the University of Michigan, among others, to the Manhattan office of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison Friday, demanding the firm stop representing fossil fuel clients such as ExxonMobil or those students won’t consider the firm an option for future employment. 

“Paul Weiss’s work on behalf of climate polluters earned the firm a resounding ‘F’ on climate change,” William Rose, a second-year student at NYU School of Law who helped deliver the pledges in Manhattan, said in a statement. “We won’t work for you as long as you’re working for ExxonMobil—and literally hundreds of students from your top recruitment schools have made the same pledge. If you want our generation’s talent, stop helping to destroy our generation’s future.”
