Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy LLM
Welcome to one of the world’s leading environmental and natural resources law programs.
Legal, business and policy-making professionals are facing an array of interrelated environmental, natural resources and energy issues. Many competing interests are involved in balancing environmental protection and natural resources development.
The University of Denver Sturm College of Law provides a world-leading course of graduate study and experience for students seeking greater understanding of these issues, and the associated challenges and opportunities. Along with our Environmental and Natural Resources core classes, we offer our students innovative coursework in Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development to better prepare them to excel in their careers.
Students are given the opportunity to study this curriculum in the nation's first law school building to be certified "green" and awarded the Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) by the U.S. Green Building Council.
Denver Law also offers a Master of Legal Studies in Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy.
“The ENRLP LLM at Denver Law is considered by the majority of lawyers that work in natural resources law as one of the best programs in the world. As a mining lawyer from Chile, it is essential to be aware of new trends, because it will permit me to apply new knowledge to the industry.” – Rodrigo Cortes, LLM’19
