Weber Teaches Environment Law In Guatemala

Professor Greg Weber taught a course, "Introduction to the U.S. Legal System: An Environmental Law Focus," from Feb. 6 through Feb. 10, in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
"We had approximately 30 students in the course, private attorneys and government counsel, and the materials were very well-received," Weber said.
The program is part of Pacific McGeorge's Inter-American Environmental Law Series, which is being conducted in partnership with CAFTA's Secretariat for Environmental Matters in Guatemala. The secretariat is an international organization created within the framework of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United State Free Trade Agreement to oversee compliance with its environmental commitments under the treaty.

Pacific McGeorge's Inter-American Program is an innovative educational initiative designed to graduate bilingual and intercultural lawyers who are competent to work with Latino clients in the U.S. or on Latin American matters. The program offers students the option to pursue a domestic or transnational track. Its summer program in Guatemala, co-sponsored by the University of Denver and Seattle University, is open to students from other law schools.

Wake Forest University School of Law

Wake Forest University School of Law has had a successful and well reputed Master of Laws (LL.M.) in American Law Program   for fourteen years.  The LL.M. program, like WFU law school, is small and selective by design.  WFU emphasizes close personal attention to the student, one-on-one interaction with professors, the daily opportunity to interact with American J.D. students, and geographic diversity in the LL.M. class.  To provide information prospective applicants, WFU created the WFU International Graduate Programs blog, which is mostly fueled by contributions from alumni on various topics.
Prospective applicants and students will find a unique look at WFU’s international programs that you would not find by just looking through their website.  Check out the blog for student perspectives on a variety of aspects ranging from applying to WFU and moving to Winston-Salem.   WFU’s goal is to provide applicants with a more realistic view of what it would be like to join their LL.M. program.
