GWU

Can people comment on their experience with the LLM at GWU? Are the faculty supportive? Or are the LLMs just mixed in with the JDs and nobody pays much attention to them?

Hi Anna, I just wanted to point out that LL.M.s at Lewis & Clark (at least) are given lots of individual attention compared to those at many other law schools. This is especially true for international LL.M.s. You still can choose from a large selection of environmental courses available to both LL.M. and J.D. students, but we have a special grading system so that international students do not have to compete with J.D.s or with U.S. LL.M.s. Also, we keep our program small so that you can interact with your own faculty advisor and faculty research paper advisor, and you also can have individualized course counseling and other advice from our two friendly environmental program directors, one of us specializing in international students, and we have a teaching assistant especially dedicated to international students. Finally, we have a special two-week orientation class so that you can meet other international LL.M. students and learn about the American legal system and legal education before starting your fall classes (including how to write research papers and take hypothetical exams), and we have social events just for LL.M.s. So please rest assured you are not going to be "lost in the crowd."

I probably don't need to tell you that L&C is always ranked #1 or #2 in the U.S. for environmental law. There's a reason for that.

If you'd like more info about our LL.M., especially for international students, I invite you to visit

Tulane is a wonderful place to study environmental law, as exciting things in the legal community are happening regarding the effects of Katrina as well as the oil spill. Besides that, there is an annual summit where environmental lawyers from across the country attend. Finally, there are important national environmental leaders who have Tulane roots. The EPA Administrator, Lisa Jackson, is a Tulane undergrad alum. Also, President Obama appointed Janet Woodka, a Tulane law alum, as the Federal Coordinator of Gulf Coast Rebuilding. After serving that role, she is now a Senior Adviser at the EPA. Hope this helps.
