As a Peruvian environmental lawyer, Milagros (Millie) is an LL.M candidate at Yale Law School. Before coming to YLS, Millie worked as an associate at a Peruvian Law Firm specializing in mining, environmental, and natural resources law. She participated in developing and implementing the main infrastructure and mining projects in Peru. Moreover, Millie is an Adjunct Professor at Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, where she assists in teaching Mining, Law & Economic, Effective Legal Communication, and Corporative Law. She is also part of the research group at the same university in Administrative Law. When COVID-19 started, Millie co-founded 'Abogadas Probono", an association of female lawyers who offer free legal assistance to those in need. With Abogadas Pro Bono, Millie has worked alongside the UN Commission on Human Rights to defend Peruvian democracy after a coup in November 2019. Finally, her love for wildlife and conservation led her also to co-found “BOCES,” an NGO dedicated to creating awareness about biodiversity and the importance of creating active actions regarding Latin America’s nature. At Yale, Millie is a fellow of the Law, Ethics & Animals Program, exploring the impact of western construction of legal concepts related to the management of the environment and the dissonance with indigenous peoples’ ideas of nature, climate, and resources.
