Stanford Law launches LLM in Environmental Law & Policy
Stanford Law School’s LLM in Environmental Law & Policy is one of the Californian law school’s postgraduate courses developed specifically for international students who have earned their bachelor’s degree in law outside the United States.
This LLM programme is suited to private and public lawyers interested in pursuing resource law and policy and provides an opportunity for them to become part of an international network of lawyers working in the same field.
The LLM in Environmental Law & Policy offers rigorous specialised training in legal and policy analysis, providing the expertise needed to address issues around pollution, toxic substances, climate change, energy, freshwater, protection of species, land use management and environmental assessment. The programme’s syllabus comprises courses drawn from Stanford Law School’s curriculum and may include related courses from other faculties in the university.
Candidates for the programme are expected to have at least two years of professional legal experience in order to be accepted, although candidates who do not meet this requirement may be considered under exceptional circumstances.
Successful candidates admitted to the course are expected to be in residence at Stanford during the full (nine-month) academic year and are required to take a minimum of 35 credit units and a maximum of 45 credit units. Up to 9 units of credit can be earned through courses taken outside the Law School.
