Tulane Announces Online Master's Degrees in Environmental and Energy Law

New programs aimed at non-lawyers working in the fields

The New Orleans-based Tulane Law School has announced the launch of two new online master's programs, in environmental law and energy law.

The new online Master of Jurisprudence programs are aimed at non-lawyers who are working in the environmental or energy fields, as well as those in regulatory and advocacy positions. This differentiates them from traditional LL.M. programs, which are typically designed for legal professionals. 

As such, the programs will help those working in and around the environmental and energy industries grapple with the complex legal and regulatory issues involved. 

Although the programs are flexible in terms of length, students can typically expect to graduate in two years. 

The curriculum list for Tulane's Online Master of Jurisprudence in Environmental Law and the Online Master of Jurisprudence in Energy Law were not immediately available. 

Applications for the new programs will be open this summer.

For more information, please see the Tulane Law news release announcing the launch of the new Online Masters in Jurisprudence programs.
