UF Law Sustainable Development: Law, Policy and Professional Practice Program held in Costa Rica Program!
May 21 – June 19, 2017
The program features practicums and a field based approach. It's experiential learning at its best, in Costa Rica!
The UF Law Costa Rica Program partners with the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) and the UF Center for Latin American Studies Tropical Conservation and Development Program, building interdisciplinary bridges between law, policy and the social and natural science of conservation and sustainable development. Students develop their knowledge and skills through an integrated, suite of courses that coalesce around efforts to find practical, policy-relevant solutions to issues of immediate importance to the conservation and sustainable development community. The Program will embark on extended visits to OTS field stations and their Neotropical context – rivers, wetlands, forests (wet, dry and cloud), beaches and mountains. Students will also visit indigenous communities, meet with farmers and land owners, and encounter unique sustainable development projects – all grist for collaborative problem-solving approaches.
