I am an environmental law passionate and also a Brazilian attorney with 10 years of experience in consulting and litigation in environmental and agrarian law in my country. I also taught environmental and agrarian at the Brazilian Bar Association. Due to my strong passion that I have developed through my VLS LLM studies in international law, I am currently interning at the Center for International Environmental Law in Washington, D.C. My favorite hobby is fishing and playing soccer with my kids. I can assure: there is no better place to study environmental law in the world than VLS.
