Program on International Environmental Legal Assistance

Project on Public Access to Environmental Information

The International Environmental Legal Assistance Program, directed by Jane Stewart ('79), enlists NYU School of Law faculty and students, as well as outside experts, to provide developing countries and countries with transition economies with practical assistance in strengthening and enforcing their environmental and land use laws and policies. The Program has conducted major projects in China , where it assisted the Environmental Protection Committee of China's National People's Congress in drafting stronger environmental laws, and in Eastern Europe . Law School students have been significantly involved in research, law drafting, policy development, and other activities of the projects. The Program is currently conducting a new project, funded by the Global Environmental Facility and administered under the Danube River Commission, to assist Bosnia , Bulgaria , Croatia , Romania , and Serbia in promoting public access to environmental information by developing appropriate laws, administrative practices, and outreach to environmental and citizens' groups.
