Environmental and Land Use

Overview

NYU’s environmental and land use law faculty are among the most distinguished academics in the field. They offer a wide range of views on cutting-edge issues from climate change to affordable housing. Student-faculty collaboration, clinics, and summer public interest internships provide hands-on opportunities to apply classroom learning to environmental problems in New York City, the nation, and the world.

Always a leader in the field, the Law School now offers the Environmental Law LLM, a new master’s program for students with a strong future professional or academic interest in environmental and land use law.
