International Environmental Law Project I
Description: Students participate directly in international environmental legal processes by preparing documents and materials for meetings of the parties to international conventions and organizations, such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), the International Whaling Commission, and NAFTA’s environmental commission. Students may also prepare submissions to international tribunals to enforce international environmental law or draft new international environmental treaties. These documents may be prepared on behalf of environmental organizations, governments, or international institutions.
Except in special circumstances, this is a full-year course for three credits each semester. Grading is on a pass/no pass basis.
A student must have permission to register for this course. To do so, students should submit an application for admission to the course (available on IELP’s website) no later than May 28, 2015. Students will receive notification as to whether they may register for the course.
