Environmental Law

The environmental law curriculum at Berkeley Law is unmatched among top law schools in its breadth, depth, and rigor. We offer certificates of specialization in Environmental Law (for JD and LLM students) and Green Technology Law. Course offerings range from energy to natural resources, from land use to water law, from the international to the local. Many of our classes attract a mix of law students and graduate students from other disciplines, including public policy, business, natural science, and social science. Students learn in a variety of environments, not just through traditional law school lecture classes but also through: seminars in which students work closely with faculty to write papers for publication; workshops that emphasize the development of skills in a real-world, experience-based format; and externship placements that take advantage of the  tremendous diversity of environmental agencies and organizations in the Bay Area.
