Kevin Chand is a 2018-2019 Ocean Design Teaching Fellow, part of a cohort of fellows that bring deep experience in design, ocean science and international policy. The Ocean Design Teaching Fellow program is co-hosted with the Stanford d.school.
Kevin Chand recently served as an oceans and environmental legal advisor to Small Island State missions to the United Nations in New York, under a Stanford Law School International Public Interest Fellowship. Before moving to the US, he worked at a Fiji-based law firm, Siwatibau and Sloan, as an environmental lawyer. He and a partner at the firm created a branch of the firm that handles oceans law and policy instructions. As part of this work, he delivered regular legal bulletins focusing on ocean issues. This pivot to oceans was in large part due to his interest and passion for oceans-related work. Kevin has an LLM from Stanford Law School, a Masters in Environmental Management from the University of Queensland and a law degree from the University of the South Pacific.
