Loyola University New Orleans College of Law
Professor Sokol joined the Loyola College of Law faculty in 2009. Her teaching and research areas include constitutional law, torts, public international law (particularly international human rights law and international environmental law), and law and philosophy. Professor Sokol graduated from Yale Law School, where she served as Articles Editor for the Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal and was a member of the Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic. After law school, Professor Sokol clerked for Judge Carolyn Dineen King of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. She then worked as a policy analyst for the Center for Progressive Reform, writing a number of papers and articles on environmental and public health and safety issues, with a focus on government and corporate accountability. The year before coming to Loyola, Professor Sokol was a fellow at Georgetown University Law Center, where she worked with faculty members on scholarship about developments in international law in response to globalization and about national and transnational tobacco control policies. She continues to focus on these and related topics in her current research.
Dr, Sadredin (Dean) Moosavi
University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
Dean’s work straddles the border between the environmental sciences and science education. In the environmental sciences he focuses on biogeochemistry, climate change and coastal/beach processes in boreal and arctic wetlands as well as in rapidly eroding beach environments such as the barrier islands of the Mississippi delta and coastal Massachusetts. In science education his work focuses on the use of place-based writing and service learning to support geoscience education of undergraduates. He is also involved in the development and assessment of the various science education standards and their impact on the learning of science in K-16 classrooms. Here’s Dean in action:
