Professor Mandiberg taught an intensive class for 45 students on how we in the U.S. enforce our environmental protection laws. The class covered all types of enforcement (administrative, civil judicial, citizen suits, and criminal), and included a basic introduction into our federalist system. The course went for 12 hours (6 each day), and Professor Mandiberg taught it entirely in Spanish. One of Lewis & Clark’s a LLM alums, Verónica Muriel Carrioni, is now employed at that university as the Director of the Environmental Law Department, and tasked with creating a cutting-edge environmental law program.
