This chapter discusses the trends in legal scholarship in the four key substantive parts comprising the international climate change legal regime: mitigation, adaptation, finance and technology transfer. Mitigation and adaptation have been the two areas that have attracted most attention in the literature. However, in the context of a Post 2015 climate change regime, climate finance and, potentially, technology transfer have become at least as relevant and important. The chapter will highlights clusters of legal scholarship for each one of the four parts of the international climate change legal regime, suggesting areas where more research is needed and work needs to be done.
