Short summary
More comprehensive legislation and litigation indicate a new significance of law in recent years within climate change politics. In order to illuminate these issues, this article engages with the political and legal scientific debates on juridification; traces the processes of juridification of climate policies in the German context from a historical perspective; and introduces the concept of "Legal Ecologies of Climate Change Adaptation" as a novel and legally nuanced perspective.
