Professor Bob Greene of Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law has been awarded a Fulbright Follow-On Grant to return to Ukraine for three weeks during the summer of 2010.  This grant builds on his teaching at the Odessa National Academy of Law during the spring of 2008.

Greene, who teaches federal and state environmental law, will study Ukrainian legal schemes for coastal protection and conduct workshops in U. S. coastal protection programs at national academies in Odessa and Simferopol.

At Cumberland since 2006, Greene taught comparative environmental law during his earlier tenure in Ukraine.  He is a graduate of Georgetown University with a juris doctor degree from The Catholic University of America.
