My friend and Vermont Law School Professor David Mears has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to teach and to assist the environmental law clinics at Sun Yat-sen University and the Center for Legal Assistance to Pollution Victims at the China University of Political Science and Law during the 2010-2011 academic year. He also intends to reach out to other universities across China that are interested in establishing environmental law clinics.

David actually lives down the road from me in Montpelier, and will be living in the same apartment building in Guangzhou where I lived last year while on my Fulbright.
