No. 1 in Environmental Law—Again

Lewis  &  Clark Law School’s Environmental, Natural Resources, and Energy Law Program earned the top spot again this year in the U.S. News & World Report rankings for the specialty. Our Environmental Law Program has been first or second in the U.S. News rankings for some 25 years.

Now 50 years old, Lewis & Clark’s Environmental Law Program was the first of its kind in the nation. Today it continues to be applauded for its faculty, as well as the depth and breadth of its offerings. These include dozens of courses, three clinics/institutes, numerous legal practica and externship options, two on-campus environmental nonprofits that work with students, and an environmental law review journal. The program administers JD, LLM, MSL, and joint JD/LLM degrees.

To encourage students all over the world to develop their expertise in environmental law, Lewis & Clark has created online distance-learning programs for the popular post-JD LLM as well as the MSL (masters degree) for professionals who are not lawyers.
