The Secretariat of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law, hosted at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law, is pleased to make two announcements regarding our linkages with EL scholars and Academy institutions around the world:

  • The University of Ottawa Faculty of Law Scholarship in Environment and Sustainability is an important part of an endowment established to assist the University’s commitment to supporting the goals of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law. The recipient for the inaugural year of this scholarship is Semie Memuna. She is from Cameroon and completed her LL.B at Buea University in Cameroon followed by her MSc in Ecotechnology and Sustainable Development at Mid Sweden University in Sweden. Miss Memuna will be commencing an LLM at the University of Ottawa in September 2011.
  • The University of Ottawa Faculty of Law has named Professor Louis Kotzé of North-West University in South Africa as Visiting Scholar in Environmental Law for the January 2012 term in Ottawa. The Faculty’s January term – three weeks of intensive learning – provides Ottawa’s students an opportunity to benefit from scholars joining us from around the world, teaching a wide range of legal topics. To further strengthen the Faculty’s link with the Academy’s member institutions, this teaching opportunity will be offered each year.

We look forward to continuing these two new initiatives for many years.
