LAW 602A - Externship-Environmental Diplomacy Practicum
Externship; Environmental Diplomacy Practicum LAW 602A; 4 credit course (2 academic and 2 experiential) In this course, students study the decision-making process and negotiation of environmental treaties in the United Nations (UN) system. Students in the Diplomacy Practicum provide assistance to UN country Missions by attending meetings on behalf of the Missions and by preparing memoranda and/or research papers on a range of issues such as climate change, renewable energy, fisheries protection, and forest management. Students meet weekly at Pace Law School in a two credit seminar, and then spend two days per week working at UN Missions. Since sessions at the UN typically run until 6:00 p.m., students will not be able to take 6:00 p.m. courses on the days they are at the UN. UN assignments are made by the Instructors, and close supervision is provided. Transportation costs to/from the UN are at the student’s expense. Prerequisites: Students should be well-grounded in environmental issues/law and have taken the International Environmental Law or International Law course, or have similar backgrounds; Application, Interview, and Permission of the Instructor.
