Comparative Environmental Law Course

Pace's Comparative Environmental Law course gives students hands-on experience comparing the environmental regimes of the United States and Brazil. This two credit Spring Semester course taught by Professor David N. Cassuto offers a unique combination of classroom and field training.  The class studies the respective environmental regimes of the United States and Brazil and aims to build students' capacity to assess environmental laws and national policies concerning environmental quality.  Following classroom instruction at Pace, students travel to travel to Brazil over Spring Break to meet prominent Brazilian scholars and attorneys in Rio de Janiero and to visit the fragile, yet crucial, ecosystems of Brazil.
