Stanford offers Environmental LL.M.; Fordham offers International Dispute Resolution

Stanford University Law School will be offering an LL.M. program in Environmental Law and Policy this fall. The the 35-credit program is open to lawyers with a primary law degree earned outside of the United States, and with at least two years of professional legal experience.

The program “seeks to provide foreign lawyers with the legal and policy analysis expertise needed to address issues of pollution, toxic substances, climate change, energy, freshwater, protection of living species on both land and in the oceans, land use management, and environmental assessment.”

Fordham University Law School launched a new International Dispute Resolution LL.M. program this fall. The program focuses on how "international disputes are resolved, through both traditional litigation and alternative methods of dispute resolution."

 

The new program is open to foreign attorneys and will qualify students to sit for the New York State bar exam.
 Foreign students will develop an appreciation for the U.S. common law system, and will learn some of the particular characteristics of the U.S. litigation model.
