There are very few U.S. law schools who offer LL.M. scholarships for international students. Lewis & Clark, frequently ranked the top environmental law program in the U.S., is one that does offer financial aid. Highly qualified international lawyers are encouraged to apply for our "Environmental Ambassador" scholarship.

We have hosted LL.M. students from every continent, including Brazil and other South American countries. Our LL.M. students are consistently delighted with our excellent and wide-ranging curriculum, our high level of academic support, the friendly community atmosphere at L&C, the "open door" policy of our prestigious faculty, our free Summer Institute for International Lawyers in August that prepares international students for the rigorous study they can expect in the U.S. common law legal system, the opportunity to take a clinical internship to do environmental legal work in a government agency, nonprofit organization or private law firm for academic credit, and the trend-setting, environmentally-friendly culture of Portland, Oregon.

I would be happy to provide further details to anyone who would like them - email me at lhw@lclark.edu.

Scholarships for study at the University of Oregon for its LL.M. in Environmental and Natural Resources Law are eagerly sought by the most qualified applicants. Applicants to the University of Oregon come from both the Fulbright program and the Edmund Muskie scholarship program, made available to only a limited number of LL.M. programs by the U.S. State Department.

The University of Oregon is one of the few leading environmental LL.M. programs in the United States that is situated on the campus of a major research university. (Only the best research universities, like Oregon, are invited to be members of the prestigious Association of American Universities.) The opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange of ideas on such a campus, beyond the law school, is a unique educational experience.

The University of Oregon's reputation as the oldest environmental law program in the United States, as the origin of clinical environmental legal education, and as the launching pad for national and international leaders (including a former U.S. Secretary of Interior and the former Executive Director of the Sierra Club) is being carried forward by the new generation of LL.M. students.

This year, one LL.M. student is helping two internationally known law professors write the world's first teaching casebook on Human Rights and the Environment. Two other LL.M.s are traveling to Geneva, Switzerland, with university support in March to participate in United Nations meetings at the Palais des Nations. One is polishing her research paper for publication in an international environmental law journal, while another is doing path-breaking research on public participation. Still others are deeply involved in issues of alternative energy and green business. One is involved in an internship in the world's most important network of environmental lawyers, which is based just a ten-minute walk from the law school, and two others have completed internships with the top Western environmental law firm, located a five-minute bicycle ride from the campus. Two students are helping organize the world's largest and most diverse environmental law conference, which takes place on the University of Oregon campus each March. They will be inviting LL.M. students from around the U.S. to attend the conference and special LL.M. events.

Senior professors consult individually with the class of LL.M. students on a daily basis to help them with research, writing, and class projects, To contact me or other faculty members who will be happy to talk with you about designing a program that is just right for you, write me at llm@uoregon.edu, visit our website at http://www.law.uoregon.edu/LLM, or telephone me at +1 541 346 0532.

Just to be clear, I go to University of Colorado law school right now and while its great for environmental law and offers a dual degree option in this area, the school has no LLM programs at all, and so no LLM in environmental law either. Just FYI to all who were looking at that top 20 list!

Hi does anybody know where this ranking can be found? Is there a more recent one and do you know whether (and to what extent) Columbia's recent launch of a Climate Change center in Dec 08 impact CLS's reputation in environment law?

2009 edition: http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/environmental-law

1 Vermont Law School South Royalton, VT
2 Lewis & Clark College (Northwestern) Portland, OR
3 Pace University White Plains, NY
4 Georgetown University Washington, DC
5 University of California--Berkeley Berkeley, CA
6 University of Colorado--Boulder Boulder, CO
6 University of Maryland Baltimore, MD
8 Duke University Durham, NC
9 New York University New York, NY
10 University of Oregon Eugene, OR

I guess the benefits of Columbia's CCC will not appear in rankings until the 2010 edition.

Edit: damn you Santa, I was still typing when you posted :p

Methodology and date are nowhere to be found.
I also have some reasons to question the accuracy of this website in general. For example, their "top 2010 law school rankings" http://www.top-law-schools.com/rankings.html still lists the Gourman report. The last edition was published in... 1997 and you have to scroll all the way down and read the small text (which most probably don't bother doing) to find out that this specific ranking is over 10 years old.

The website manager/editor-in-chief is a Berkeley grad (though he has been honest never to try and hide this fact), and on many occasions reveals a pro California bias. Granted I also have a pro DC and anti NYC bias, but unlike him I don't run a website aimed at prospective law students :)
