Introduction

The LLM program in Energy and Environmental Law at UConn School of Law engages students and develops their expertise in global energy needs, climate change, renewable energy policy, environmental policy and land use.

Through the Center for Energy & Environmental Law, students have the opportunity to move beyond the classroom to practice-based learning opportunities, including:

  • field placements with state agencies, law firms, energy and environmental corporations and regulated utilities
  • the Semester in DC program, which places students at such federal agencies as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy
  • applied research in a range of areas

Students have opportunities to attend lectures and events with science and research departments at UConn and other institutions. The flexible and unique program prepares students to integrate energy and environmental disciplines into their work, making them singularly valuable in their chosen professional fields.

Center for Energy & Environmental Law

Global energy demands, climate change, environmental degradation and population growth place pressure on energy and environmental policy. Recognizing that these disciplines can no longer be taught separately, the UConn School of Law created the Center for Energy & Environmental Law in 2010 as part of a program for combined legal education, policy and scholarship. The Center for Energy & Environmental Law enables students to focus their studies in these exciting areas by bringing together experts from many disciplines to tackle the complex challenges relating to the world’s environmental and energy futures.
