Prof. McAllister Appointed Visiting Scholar at UCSD Center for US-Mexican Studies
Professor Lesley K. McAllister was appointed as a Visiting Scholar at the Center for US-Mexican Studies at the University of California, San Diego. In this capacity, she has been writing about Mexican environmental law, and she will present her research in a public lecture on Wednesday, November 30.
Titled "Co-Regulation in Mexican Environmental Law," her lecture will discuss how Mexican environmental law has used novel regulatory approaches to overcome widespread noncompliance and other problems common to the implementation of environmental law in industrializing countries. Field work for the research was carried out in 2010 with a grant from the University of San Diego’s Trans-Border Institute (TBI).
