Environmental, Land Use, & Real Estate Law
The Environmental, Land Use & Real Estate Law Program educates future lawyers through an innovative approach that combines the study of real estate and land use law with environmental law. Many environmental problems result from inappropriate uses of land. Air and water pollution, toxic and hazardous waste, endangered species protection and balancing public health and environmental values against the protection of private property interests are challenges that face every community.
In today’s complex legal practice, lawyers increasingly must specialize. Through the Environmental, Land Use, & Real Estate Law Program, students can graduate from law school with a valuable credential that indicates both concentration and accomplishment in these two fields.
