International Perspectives on Urban Law and Policy (LAW 7397) brings four distinguished scholars from around the world to lead small, focused seminars about land-use planning and environmental law in their countries. This course is open to Georgia State law students and graduate students from both Georgia State University and Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of City and Regional Planning. There are no prerequisites. This course does not meet every week – please note the lecture dates for each visiting professor. In addition to the lecture dates for each of the foreign visiting professors, the class will meet a few additional times over the course of the semester. The first class will be on January 14th; however, additional meeting dates will be publicized soon.
There are two different sections with two different credit hours for this course: (a) 2-credits: Students who attend lectures and (b) 3-credits: Students who attend lectures AND go to Brazil for spring break week. Students participating in the study abroad program will write a short reflection paper. For all students, there will be an exam or assignment after each visiting professor.
Please make sure to enroll in the correct section. Enrollment in the 3-credit section requires instructor permission. Please email Karen Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
This year, we will have visiting professors from Brazil, Poland, France, and Denmark.
