Although many law schools have environmental and natural resources law programs, the University of Denver Sturm College of Law’s Environmental and Natural Resources Program is one of very few that introduces students to all of the aspects of environmental and natural resources law. In addition to offering courses in traditional areas of environmental law (air pollution, water pollution and hazardous waste law), the program also allows you to explore the environmental aspects of land use law and growth management, Indian law, mining law, oil and gas law, public land law, wildlife law, water law and energy law. Whether you plan to work for the global energy industry or represent clients working to address climate change, we can provide the knowledge and skills you will need and help you learn from each other.
Just as significant, we pride ourselves on providing students with opportunities for hands-on experience in the practice of environmental and natural resources law. The wonderfully supportive Denver environmental and natural resources bar, our Legal Externship Program and Environmental Law Clinic provide unparalleled opportunities for learning what environmental and natural resources attorneys actually do every day and helping students decide what they want to do with their careers.
Come and join us. We are confident you will benefit from our program.
