Specialization in Environmental Law & Policy

MLS StudentsFew fields are as diverse or engaging as that of environmental law, compliance and policy. Together with the outstanding environmental science, economics and policy departments at the University of Arizona, the College of Law can provide rich and rigorous training to those interested in matters of environmental law. Areas include pollution law, water law, natural resources law, energy law, and ecosystem management. Students may wish to obtain the MLS to work in a private firm environmental compliance department, for a government agency in permitting, environmental assessment or compliance, or for an overseas multinational corporation that will inevitably engage with environmental regulation at the domestic or international levels.
