MES/Master in Law (ML)

You are here

The ubiquity of environmental law across all parts of the private and public sectors makes this area of study relevant to a wide range of students, who then go on to careers such as government and nonprofit policy development, private consulting for resource management, and business sustainability reporting across entire supply chains.  The capstone component of the MES program provides students with the opportunity to participate in a research initiative related to an aspect of environmental law. Students in this dual degree program obtain needed structure for study within the broad field of environmental law, which ranges from resource use, to air and water pollution regulation, to addressing complex and ever-changing energy policy.  Full time-students complete the program in two and a half years while part-time students may take up to five years to complete the dual degree.

To begin the dual degree, you must apply and gain admission to both the Penn Law School and the College of Liberal and Professional Studies independently. Once admitted to both programs, you may choose the dual degree program.
