LLM in Environmental Law Now Offered Online

January 14, 2019

Lewis & Clark is now offering its LLM degree in Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law through a distance-learning online option.

The online LLM in Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law builds on the law school’s internationally recognized post-JD environmental law Master’s program, and is specifically designed for attorneys who want to more effectively practice in today’s global environmental legal issues.  Applications for the Fall 2019 Cohort are now being accepted.

Attorneys around the world can now obtain the LLM degree from one of the highest-ranked environmental law programs in the United States without the need for relocation. For 30 years, the on-campus Lewis & Clark Law Environmental Law LLM has provided working lawyers an effective way to advance their legal career with this specialization in environmental law. Previous graduates of the in-person LLM in Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law at Lewis & Clark have described this program as a challenging, exhilarating, and career-enhancing experience.

“At Lewis & Clark Law School, we are committed to offering our top-ranked faculty, curriculum, and educational opportunities on a new platform. With this new online version of our Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law LLM, students will be able to earn a valuable education without disruption to their personal or professional commitments.

The program is designed for lawyers who are in private practice, serve as government employees, elected officials, energy advisors, natural resources law specialists, and others. The online courses will be taught by some of the nation’s leading scholars. Learn more about the Lewis & Clark Law School Faculty here.
