ASIL's Latin America Interest Group (LAIG) invites you to the interest group's inaugural event, which will consider international legal implications of the controversial Nicaraguan Canal.

The speakers will examine how this $50 billion inter-ocean megaproject could impact indigenous and Afro-Caribbean rights, and how international environmental law should regulate this initiative.
