Professor Trujillo teaching

On June 16, 2022, Professor Elizabeth Trujillo was invited by the University of Bologna Center for Latin American Studies to teach a class on sustainable development and international economic law as part of their Summer School on Comparative Law Methodology (“Metodología de la comparación jurídica”).  Professor Trujillo’s presentation on Sustainable Development and International Trade Law: Challenges and Possibilities (“El Desarrollo Sostenible y el Derecho Internacional en lo Comercial: Los Desafios y las Posibilidades”) was taught in Spanish and online, including an estimated 60 students located in Europe, Mexico, and Latin America.  The two-week course (in person and online) is offered yearly with the purpose to connect with graduate students and legal professionals studying in or working on issues connected with Latin America.

Professor Trujillo’s participation is part of an ongoing collaboration with the University of Bologna Department of Political and Social Sciences which will culminate in a Memorandum of Agreement between the University of Houston Law Center and University of Bologna. This Agreement will allow for more faculty exchanges and research collaborations in the future, in addition to student opportunities.
