January 11, 2016

Nadia Ahmad is assistant professor of law at the Barry University Andreas School of Law. Professor Ahmad earned her LLM from Denver Law and taught at Pace University School of Law before joining the Barry University law faculty. At the recent Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Meeting, she moderated a panel entitled “Challenging Sovereignty: Exploring the Rise of ISIS and Boko Haram.” The panel also featured Professors Sahar Aziz from the Texas A&M University School of Law, Bernard Freamon from Seton Hall Law and John Kelsay from the Florida State University Department of Religion.

At Denver Law, Professor Ahmad earned her LLM in the school’s Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program. “I am very grateful for the opportunities and connections I made while at Denver Law,” she recounts. At the AALS meeting, she also presented on “Community Based Environmental Monitoring in India’s Sirsa River Valley,” That project, she says, “grew from my research and classwork in the DU Law course on Community Expectations for Sustainable Development in Natural Resources Projects, taught by Porfessor Luke Danielson." Alongside her scholarship focusing on the intersection of energy and environmental law with international investment and development, Professor Ahmad also writes on women’s legal rights in South Asia and the Middle East, often taking a historical approach to this inquiry.
