Florida State University College of Law in Tallahassee offers a terrific place to study environmental, energy and land use law. The Certificate program is designed to allow students to complete the requirements while simultaneously completing a well-rounded non-certificate curriculum as well. Upon graduation, students who successfully complete the program receive a certificate along with their J.D. degree, indicating to employers and others that they have achieved special competency in the fields of environmental, energy and land use law.
The College of Law's proximity to the center of Florida's government offers students advantages few environmental, energy and land use programs can match. Externship and pro bono opportunities with government agencies and public interest groups give students a chance to learn about the creation and implementation of environmental law from the inside. The opportunity to watch laws and policies being developed, legislated and litigated provides law students an experience that will make them both astute practitioners and better citizens. Legal educations at Florida State are further enriched by attorneys and public officials in the environmental, energy and land use areas who serve as adjunct faculty and lecturers at the law school.
To enroll in the Environmental Law Certificate program, you must submit an application form to the Environmental Law Office prior to the completion of the second course that you plan to use to satisfy the certificate requirements. Application forms can be emailed to Jennifer Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application approval is required to pursue the Environmental Law Certificate track.
