Why this course is important

Minorities and low income groups have been ignored in environmental regulation. Case studies on point are the destruction of the Navajo Generating Station and the Hia C-ed O’odham indigenous community. Scientia Junctus Legum enables students to advocate for the Indigenous Nations.
