New Joint Degree Program in Law and Economics Announced

A new program at The University of Arizona that combines the advanced study of law with economics in an accelerated program for students interested in environmental policy. Faculty in UA’s James E. Rogers College of Law and the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics work together to offer the program, which is currently recruiting for its fall 2008 class. Those who graduate from the new program earn a law degree, a master of science degree and a graduate certificate in economics, law and the environment. Graduates are expected to work in a highly specialized field that involves environmental issues and scarce resources, like water, timber and land. Professor Kirsten Engel, from the law school, and Dean Lueck, the Bartley P. Cardon Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics, will be the co-directors of the new program.
