Stanford University's Master of Laws (LLM) in Environmental Law and Policy (ELP) offers rigorous interdisciplinary training in environmental, energy and resource law and policy.


Key facts

Stanford University's specialized Environmental Law and Policy program seeks to provide foreign lawyers with the legal and policy analysis expertise needed to address issues of pollution, toxic substances, climate change, energy, freshwater, protection of living species on both land and in the oceans, land use management, and environmental assessment.  Candidates admitted to the program will pursue an individually tailored sequence of courses that are drawn primarily from the Law School’s curriculum dealing with the environment and public policy, but may also include related courses in other departments at the university.  The program is particularly appropriate for private and public lawyers seeking additional interdisciplinary training that they can use to further environmental and resource law and policy in their home nations or internationally and who wish to become part of a network of graduates working on similar challenges.

The LLM in Environmental Law & Policy is limited to students with a primary law degree earned outside the United States.  Except under unusual circumstances, candidates must have at least two years of professional legal experience before commencing the LLM program.
