Graduate LLM Environmental Law Seminar

This seminar is a two semester requirement for LL.M. students, staffed by the environmental/natural resources faculty and staff and annual Distinguished Environmental Law Scholar.  As part of the seminar, each student prepares a paper on an environmental or natural resources topic of his/her choice.  During the fall semester, faculty and guests lead discussions on environmental and natural resources topics of interest to the group, such as new case law, emerging trends, current events, theories of environmental policy, or faculty works in progress.  During the spring semester, students make individual presentations on their papers. (Students who begin the program or seminar in the spring will do their paper presentation in the following fall semester).

The seminar schedule and format may vary from year to year.  In general, it will meet for two hours every other week in the fall and for two hours every week in the second half of the spring semester.  The exact schedule will be set prior to the beginning of classes.  Students are graded in the seminar based on overall participation in the seminar throughout the year (1/3) and on their paper and presentation (2/3).
