University at Buffalo Announces New LL.M. in Environmental Law

The university's location in New York State will provide local context for environmental issues

The University at Buffalo School of Law is launching a brand new LL.M. in Environmental Law.

Students will study a range of environmental law topics, including land use, climate change policy, pollution control and international environmental law.

The program also offers plenty of opportunities for practical experience, including a large research project as well as a compulsory clinic, practicum or externship where students will work with clients on real environmental law cases.

The law school's location in New York State will provide a relevant backdrop to the program, with the nearby Niagara Falls as well as the Love Canal pollution disaster site both nearby.

The university itself has committed to achieving climate neutrality by 2030.
