ELP Grant takes Lena Mobin ’12 to the International Union for Conservation of Nature in Germany

This summer, Lena Mobin ’12, worked at the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s Environmental Law Center (ELC) in Bonn, Germany. Lena spent the summer drafting and researching a policy paper on the governance of marine protected areas beyond national jurisdiction, which is currently being addressed at the international level.

Lena also attended several United Nations climate change conferences held in Bonn, where she observed various delegations, particularly African nations, call for capacity-building mechanisms in their countries to cope with climate change.

Additionally, Lena had to opportunity to work with many international environmental law attorneys and with fellow legal interns from around the world. She says that “[i]t was an opportunity of a lifetime.”
