A ceremony at the Faculty of Law of the University of Buenos Aires on 10 February 2010 marked the presentation of the prestigious Faculty Award to Dr. Alejandro Iza, Director of the IUCN Environmental Law Centre. The Award is presented occasionally for the best doctoral thesis based on individual research.
In this case, the Faculty Award honors not only his doctoral thesis, but also the academic and professional successes in his career, which was praised by the panel of judges. Dr Iza has also taught several courses in Buenos Aires. According to Dr. Iza, "this award is not only an honor for me, but for the entire team of the ELC and IUCN, to whom I owe the greater part of my professional success".
