Lawyers looking to take their career to the next level will find challenge, choice and flexibility at the School of Law.
Environmental law plays a major role in structuring the relationship between human beings and the world around them. Almost every kind of legal practice today touches some aspect of environmental law.
Lawyers practice environmental law in large and small private law firms, in the offices of in-house corporate counsel in trade associations, in federal, state and local government agencies, in the offices of state attorneys general and the U.S. Department of Justice, and in many non-governmental organizations. Whether future employment entails advocating the position of a public interest group, a corporate client, a government agency, or a private citizen, the Environmental Law Program is designed to meet the need for knowledgeable and skillful application of legal principles and techniques to environmental and natural resource problems, including climate change.
The Environmental Law LL.M. offers students the opportunity to develop their skills and understanding of environmental law and policy through a structured program of study and experience.
