The legal landscape around human rights due diligence is changing rapidly on both a domestic and international level. Whilst the United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGPs) established a responsibility for businesses to respect human rights, these principles are not legally binding. This is set to change, however, with several different jurisdictions developing legislation that will essentially bring the UNGPs into law. A notable example is the European Union’s proposal for a Draft Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence which will require businesses operating within the EU to conduct due diligence across their supply chain to identify and address human rights and environmental impacts.

The changing legal landscape means that businesses will need to adapt their governance mechanism to ensure that they are complying fully with new regulations. Given the speed and wide reach of the changes, this can create a complex challenge for businesses. Navigating the legal system can be complicated, therefore, legal counsel will be essential in assisting businesses in implementing due diligence practices.

There is a responsibility on the legal profession to assist companies and clients to understand their legal obligations and apply human rights and supply chain due diligence principles. This training course will help lawyers and legal counsel to understand the current legal landscape as pertains to supply chain due diligence, and how best to support businesses and clients in ensuring effective compliance with these changes.
