The LLM in Environmental Law degree program is designed for students who have already earned a law degree and wish to pursue intensive study and practical training in environmental law. The program is open to students who have graduated with a JD degree from a U.S. law school as well as students who have received a law degree in another country.
Vermont Law School offers LLM candidates over 50 courses in environmental law and policy—the widest range of courses offered by any law school in the world—giving students the opportunity to design a curriculum that matches their personal objectives. In addition, students can specialize in such areas as climate change, land use, natural resources, or water resources. Students in the LLM in Environmental Law program participate in a special LLM seminar focusing on advanced research topics in environmental law.
Full-time LLM students ordinarily complete the degree requirements in twelve months. Students may begin their studies in either the summer or fall semester. Students have the option of taking up to five years from the date of matriculation to complete the degree. VLS recently launched the nation's first online master's degree program in environmental law. Find out more at www.vermontlaw.edu/onlinedegrees.
