Master of Science in Law — Environmental Law

 

Need

Environmental laws and regulations touch business operations across the globe every day.

Employers need chemists, biologists, engineers and other professional staff with a clear grasp of the risks, problems and consequences that prompted environmental regulation and the practices needed to comply with it.

Maryland Carey Law’s MSL provides scientists and other professionals with legal insight into the most important environmental laws here and abroad as well as the mechanisms and administrative agencies that enforce them.

Focus

Faculty members of Maryland Carey Law’s nationally recognized Environmental Law Program developed the MSL curriculum. After completing the MSL’s first semester of core courses, students will take an in-depth survey course in Environmental Law during their second semester, followed by seminars during their third semester focusing on such topics as:

  • Clean Air Act
  • Clean Water Act
  • Energy Policy and Climate Change
  • Global Environmental Law
  • Federal Commercial Chemical Regulation
  • Energy Development and Finance

The program culminates in a capstone project in which students focus on a practical challenge in their chosen field under the guidance of a faculty or practitioner advisor.

All courses will be taught by faculty of the Environmental Law Program as well as practicing attorneys from the public and private sectors and other practitioners.
