LAW 2788 - Ecuador Field Study: Special Issues in International Environmental Law


Conducted in an eco-lodge, Casa Mojanda, located in Otavalo, Ecuador, the Ecuador Field Study: Special Issues in International Environmental Law (EFS)
provides students with the opportunity to observe first-hand both international environmental challenges and their management. The EFS is a one
credit, one week intensive course in which the following selected international environmental law topics will be explored – climate change policy
responses, protection of forests, and the role transnational corporations play in the creation and
resolution of international environmental challenges. Further, students will learn about topics specific to Ecuador such as the high profile litigation against
Chevron for alleged environmental and social harms in Ecuador’s Amazon region and the rights given to nature in the new Ecuadorian constitution.
