A Dynamic Industry…
The field of natural resources and environmental law has rapidly evolved into an ongoing international concern. For example, in the past decade over 100 nations have either introduced or are drafting new mining laws. In addition, renewable energy and sustainability issues have become pressing domestic and international concerns. Both legal and non-law professionals in this active legal environment must understand both domestic natural resources law and how resources are regulated in international jurisdictions, if they hope to compete in the global arena.
We recognize a vital need for advanced graduate studies in this complex legal field and offer a comprehensive, multilevel program to help attorneys, natural resources professionals, and government regulators increase their knowledge of the issues, policies, and laws that affect resources and the environment worldwide.
The University of Denver College of Law’s Graduate Studies Program in Natural Resources and Environmental Law is designed for American and foreign attorneys and non-law natural resources professionals who wish to apply their skills at home, or who plan to work both in the United States and abroad.
Our program offers a curriculum of courses relating to natural resources law, policy, economics, regulation, contracts, and international transactions, including several classes offered by no other university in the world.
Join us and expand your academic credentials for a rich and rewarding career in the global natural resources and environment industry.
