JD/Master of Environmental Management
The Law School and Nicholas School of the Environment have established a combined four-year program in law and graduate level environmental management. Acceptance into this program requires applying separately for admission to each school. The students in the JD/MEM program may enroll the first year in either the Nicholas School of the Environment or the Law School. If the student begins in the former, the first-year curriculum is the same as that of other Nicholas School students; if the student begins in the latter, the first-year curriculum is the same as that of other law students. The student's second year consists of the full first-year program of the other school. In the third and fourth years of the program, the student takes courses in both schools. Approximately two-thirds of these courses are taken in the Law School.
