LL.M. Environmental Law Specialization

Environmental law explores issues linked to the environment, energy, and water at local, national, and international levels. Our San Francisco location is a hub for environmental law, with top private and public law firms, state and federal government offices, and non-governmental organizations just steps away from campus. LL.M. students work closely with faculty whose expertise includes water law, environmental law, land law, food law, climate change, and biodiversity.
