UPR Resiliency Law Center (Español)

The UPR Resiliency Law Center is a two-part project aimed at shifting the balance of power to local communities in order to ensure that disaster recovery and rebuilding in Puerto Rico is effective, fair, and resilient, by:

  1. 1. Developing legal techniques to fight climate change,
  2. 2. Training students and lawyers in the use of said legal techniques,
  3. 3. Providing counseling, legal representation and education to individuals and leaders of communities affected by natural disasters and climate change, and
  4. 4. Establishing an advocacy center for disaster recovery efforts and climate change awareness.
