“Comparative Latin American Mining Law,” a three-credit course, will be offered the week of Aug. 3-7, 2009, at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.

The course will meet from 8.30 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day with breaks for lunch. In addition, students should plan for course-related assignments that will take place before the course begins, during the week of the course, and after the course ends.

On Monday evening, Aug. 3, there will be a reception at the law school so that the students can get to know Ms. Heredia and Mr. Rodrigo in a more relaxed setting.

The course is open to American lawyers and law students, foreign lawyers and law students, admitted students in DU’s Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Graduate Program, and other interested persons. The tuition and fees for the course are $3,200.

American and/or foreign law students who would like to earn credit for the course must apply to be “visiting” students at DU. American and/or foreign lawyers who would like to earn Master’s in Law credit for the courses through DU’s graduate program should contact Don Smith, Program Director, or Lucy Daberkow, Assistant Program Director, to learn more about applying for the program. Non-lawyers who are interested in earning credits towards DU’s Master’s in Resource Law Studies graduate program should also contact Mr. Smith or Ms. Daberkow about applying for that program.
