Application Process and Deadlines

We are now accepting applications for 2021-’22 contact with questions.

Please note: Applicants for the LLM program must be graduates of an accredited U.S. or international law school and must demonstrate an excellent academic record, strong legal research and writing skills, and a genuine and documented interest in environmental and natural resources law. Applicants must hold, or be about to obtain, a law degree that would qualify them to apply to practice as a lawyer or judge in their home country (JD if in the United States, otherwise LL.B. or the equivalent); actual bar membership or law practice is not required. A degree in any other discipline, even if combined with elements of law or policy, is not sufficient to qualify for LLM admission. For U.S. students, a JD from an ABA-accredited law school is highly preferred.
