Dear Students:

 

The need for skilled lawyers and policymakers in environmental and science law has never been greater. Scientific knowledge continues to grow exponentially, challenging us in ways that would have seemed like fiction to previous generations. At the same time, communication technology collapses time and distance, creating new markets and underscoring our interdependence with others. Law is the tool by which discovery and innovation can be managed, and through which global challenges related to the planet can be addressed.

 

The Environmental Law, Science, and Policy program offers students and scholars the chance to learn, study, and share this important work. An internationally known faculty and with a diverse student body drawn from the top tier of the national applicant pool constitute one of the more robust and innovative environment and science law programs in the country. Drawing on the strengths of the University of Arizona, a world-class research institution, Arizona Law is uniquely situated to train lawyers and leaders.
