The 2013 Comparative Water Law Class at Biesbosch National Park

Associated with the St. Thomas/Barry University Schools of Law Summer in Spain Program, the USNC Comparative Water Law Course, May 19-23, 2014, looks at differences between US water/environmental law and Netherlands/European Union water/environmental law.  The course examines water management from a nation below sea-level, including visits to dykes, surge barriers, and windmills as well as environmental innovations in this progressive nation. The situation in the Netherlands is compared and contrasted with Florida in particular.
