Native American Environmental Law


PatGreen
Hello, I'm new to the forums here so this may have already been addressed and I may have passed over it, sorry if that's the case. I'm currently a J.D. student planning on studying for an LLM in Environmental Law. I want my program specifically to address Native Americans, and Indian Law in an environmental context. What environmental programs offer the best chance to mix the two? Would my best bet be to go for the LLM in Indian Law? Anyone currently applying for or studying towards a similar program that can offer some guidance will be appreciated!

Did you have a look at the Arizona Indigenous Law Program? They also have some courses in environmental law.

I did have a look at both Arizona, and Arizona State's programs. I currently attend the University of Tulsa College of Law, which offers an LLM in Native American Law. Lewis and Clark and University of Oregon both seem to have strong Native American components to their environmental programs as well.

Lewis and Clark is said to be very strong in Environmental Law (no. 1 in the US News ranking). I do not know anything about their expertise in Native American Law though.

Hi,
Can someone give me some feedback on some of the tribal law programs here in the southwest? My top choices are UNM, ASU, Univ. of Colorado-Boulder, and Univ of Arizona. I would like to apply to 2 more schools, possibly on the eastern coast. Anyone have any good references?

Are you looking for a JD or an LLM?

UNM does not offer an LLM: http://lawschool.unm.edu/admissions/faq.php#sixteen

ASU has an LLM in Tribal Policy, Law, and Government, which looks interesting: http://www.law.asu.edu/LLM-tribal.

Colorado does not offer an LLM: http://www.colorado.edu/prospective/graduate/academics/academics.html

Arizona's LLM in Indigenous Peoples Law & Policy Program seems to be a good choice as well. Arizona (Rogers) is ranked 43. by US News (tied with Colorado..., ASU 53.).
