Ten Duke Law students, led by Professor Laurence Helfer, spent their spring break in Brazil, doing field research into the land rights of Afro-Brazilian communities. An integral part of their semester-long ad hoc seminar, the trip allowed students to work with communities of quilombolas, Afro-Brazilians descended from slaves, who are seeking legal title to lands they have long occupied.
