Title: environmental/natural resources llm
Post by: Slim on October 16, 2004, 12:06:52 PM
Hi, I am a foreign nat. resources lawyer working in the UK. I'm looking for some help with the following questions:
How well is the denver llm in nat resources and environmental regarded in the US/internationally?
Anyone know someone who has been accepted into this course/or is at denver law school?
How tough is it to get into compared with other similar llm programmes, eg Tulane, Lewis and Clark, U. of Houston, or Vermont?
I'm looking to enroll in an llm to start in August 2005, but can't seem to find much info on these programmes. I'd be grateful for any advice or useful links.

If you are in England, I would recommend that you consider the LLM at the University College London.  There is a rather good environmental programme with subjects from International Law of Natural Resources to European Community Environmental Law.  I am sure that if you chose that option it would be more fun that going to Denver.  The international recognition of a University of London LLM is also much greater.  While I have nothing against American degrees, I may venture to say you are better off at UCL
I believe there are two Canadians teaching Nat Res at UCL : Cathrine Redgwell and Robert Volterra, both very well educated persons.  You would also have Philippe Sands QC and Richard Macory...

Hope that helped

thanks. my preference is to study in the states. having lived in london for a few years now, the chance to study somewhere else is appealing. in applying to american llm courses,can relevant career experience  offset less than stellar law achool grades?
