Directors Welcome

David_CassutoWelcome to the website of the Brazil-American Institute for Law and Environment (BAILE). I invite you to browse the site and discover the many exciting dimensions of Pace Law School's work in Brazil and of  FGV Law School’s work in the U.S.

As a part of Pace’s dynamic Center for Environmental Legal Studies and FGV’s Research Center in Environmental Law, BAILE is dedicated to exploring and deepening the connections between Brazil and the United States and to aiding both countries’ efforts to tackle environmental challenges.

This website will provide you with information on upcoming and past conferences and symposia on a variety of topics, graduate and faculty collaborative opportunities here in the United States and Brazil, announcements and news items tracking our activities, pending and completed publications, and our annual summer courses along with the ability to register for these events. The goal is to create enduring relationships among Brazilian and American legal professionals – relationships focused not just on environmental law but on all areas of law that impact our environment.

We hope you will find this website useful. We welcome your feedback (email the Director) and encourage you to send us comments and ideas on BAILE’s programs both current and potential. Thanks for visiting.

Professor of Law & Director of BAILE
