Courses Outside the Law School
While working in the advanced degree program, you may extend your academic credentials by taking additional credited courses offered outside the College of Law. LLM and MRLS students may take up to six credit hours at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of International Studies and Daniels College of Business, or at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. LLM, MRLS and JD students may also participate in one of our inter-university exchanges.
Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS)
The GSIS has an internationally renowned curriculum of graduate studies programs that attracts students from many countries. The GSIS prepares students for positions in government service, international organizations, and international business. Students gain expertise in a general area of international relations, such as international politics, comparative politics, political theory, and international economics.
The Daniels College of Business
The Daniels College of Business Administration provides programs in business and commercial law. Many GSIS and Daniels faculty members and associates have experience within the field of international natural resources studies.
Colorado School of Mines
The University of Denver College of Law and the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) have had a long and successful relationship, offering law students interested in a career in natural resources and environmental law the opportunity to pursue a graduate-level degree at CSM jointly with their JD degree at the University of Denver. LLM and MRLS students in the International Natural Resources and Environmental Law Graduate Studies program also may take CSM courses. The Colorado School of Mines is just twenty minutes from the College of Law campus.
The Colorado School of Mines was established in the late 1800s and is regarded as preeminent among universities worldwide, offering courses in engineering, economics, geology, petroleum, environment, and other earth science disciplines. CSM’s departments of Geophysics and Resource Economics are considered among the finest in the world. The school maintains its own “working laboratory” mine in nearby Idaho Springs, and a geological and petroleum camp near Pueblo, Colorado.
