Aude S. Epstein is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of legal studies at NYU Abu Dhabi. Previously, she was a Tenured Assistant Professor at Paris Nanterre University and Adjunct Professor at Sorbonne University and Sciences Po, where she has been particularly active in developing the animal law clinic. Her research sheds a critical light on the use of business law to foster environmental protection and animal welfare. She is now leading a research project on the ecologization of business law for the French Ministry of Justice and the French Agency for environmental protection (ADEME). Her PhD dissertation, which deals with the use of corporate disclosure as a tool to foster environmentally sound business practices, has received the Joinet Prize for private and comparative law (2015) and a 3-years grant by the French Agency for environmental protection (ADEME).
