PhD Student


Christian Sopuruchi is a doctoral student at the Peter Allard School of Law and an Assistant Professor at the Jindal Global Law School Haryana India.  His current doctoral research focuses on the intricate and layered subject of environmental dispute management in the West African states bordering the Lake Chad Basin. His research aims to comprehensively understand the environmental conflicts present in the sub-region with the objective of proposing a bespoke dispute management model to address these challenges effectively.  As a corollary to his research project, Sopuruchi  is passionate about building a resilient thriving community for African residents in British Columbia through effective leadership. This drive has inspired him to chair the Liu Institute Network for Africa (LINA UBC) while leading the Precious Fountain Foundation, an organization dedicated to intervening in defective areas of education in Africa. You can listen to Sopuruchi every Sunday on African Vibes Vancouver Coop Radio, where he cohosts a radio show dedicated to providing information and entertainment to BC's  Black residents.
