Environmental Law LL.M. Which to choose?


MDDLRC

So, for an environmental LL.M., which program would you chose:

Georgetown (specialized LL.M.)
Berkeley (General LL.M. with certificate of specilization in environmental law)
NYU (specialized LL.M.)
Columbia (General LL.M. cool courses on climate change)
Stanford (specialized LL.M. BUT NO environmental law clinics)

For me it is very important, the prestige factor. BUT, in stanford there is no environmental law clinic.

thoughts??????

Hi. Choose Georgetown if you're looking for a prestigious degree but go for NYU if you're seriously intend to become a silver-tongued environmental lawyer.

When you get into Stanford Law School, you definitely will already have quite some work experience.  Why would you then want to join unexperienced JD's in a clinic tailored to them?
- With the opportunities you'll get, you want to take advanced classes and policy labs (generally more interesting than clinics but also practical, Stanford-specific) in the Law School and take all kinds of courses across campus in the new Sustainability School, energy or earth sciences departments, Business School, ...
- You can do pro bono work as a Stanford LLM and, if you really want, help faculty in research or teaching projects (remunerated of course).  But I would definitely recommend the environmental policy labs the most.  And you can ofc also join the Stanford Environmental Law Journal and the people from the Environmental Law Society (or the energy-related cross-campus initiatives).
- You also won't need "a clinic" to get a job in environmental or energy law in the US post-graduation.  The many emails from various insitutes, national networks, etc. which you will receive as an ELP LLM student, relationships you might build with certain faculty or others and the Stanford name tag, will make a much greater difference.
---  My advice as a Stanford ELP LL.M.  ---   Good luck!
