Akilah Anderson, Attorney, Jamaica Environmental Trust
Jennifer Hatfield, JD. Candidate, University of Florida Levin College of Law
The UF/UCR Joint Program in Environmental Law has benefited from the participation of Jamaican attorneys and law students for a number of years. In the 2004 Program Akilah Anderson, an attorney with the Jamaica Environmental Trust, and Jennifer Hatfield, a University of Florida law student, teamed up to develop a citizen’s guide to environmental law in Jamaica. The guide was developed to explain in simple English the rights and remedies that Jamicans have to enforce environmental law in the country. The manual will be published the Jamaica Environmental Trust and distributed to community groups throughout the island nation.
