Detailed course descriptions are linked in the listings below.

  • Externship Option

    An LL.M. student who is pursuing this specialization and obtains an externship relating to environmental law may apply it as a Group A course for the specialization. A student wishing to use an externship as a Group A course must receive the prior consent of the designated faculty advisor. Consent requires a demonstration that the externship will provide exposure to relevant substantive areas of law. Regardless of the number of externships or externship units a student completes, a student may use an externship to count, at most, as one Group A course.
