The Certificate of Specialization in Environmental Law provides a coherent foundation that prepares students for the legal problems they will confront in practice, whether on behalf of government agencies, industrial clients, private litigants, or public interest groups. The certificate requires 15 credit hours, including two foundation courses: Pollution Control (fundamentals of air, water, and waste regulation); Natural Resources (management of public and private resources); or Administrative Law (principles from which public environmental law derives); and two other courses selected from the diverse environmental and energy law curriculum. An average of 40 students in each graduating class have received the Certificate of Specialization in Environmental Law.
