LL.M. in Environmental & Land Use Law

The University of Florida Levin College of Law is pleased to accept applications for its newest degree program-a Masters (LL.M.)

in Environmental and Land Use Law. This one-year post-J.D. degree provides an opportunity for experienced attorneys, as well as

recent law school graduates, to spend an academic year full-time on the UF campus developing in-depth expertise in environmental

and land use law. The program is now accepting applications for fall 2009.

Students admitted to the program work with the LL.M. program director to design an individual course of study tailored to their

particular interests. LL.M. students are eligible to participate in the Conservation Clinic and to apply for a seat in the summer

Environmental Law Study Abroad Program in Costa Rica. The LL.M. program adopts an innovative approach that combines the study

of land use law with environmental law.

The program also capitalizes on the many outstanding programs at the University of Florida in disciplines related to environmental

and land use law practice, including wildlife ecology, environmental engineering, urban and regional planning, and interdisciplin-

ary ecology. The UF LL.M. program is unique in requiring that six of the 26 required credit hours must be from relevant courses

that have substantial non-law content and are offered outside the law school or jointly by the law school and another department. In

addition to completing required coursework, LL.M. candidates must complete a written project in connection with a seminar or the

Conservation Clinic.
