JD\LLM in Environmental Law

Pace Law students in good standing are eligible to apply for admission to the LLM program in their sixth semester in the full-time JD program (in the eighth for evening students), by submitting an abbreviated application.

On completion of the JD and admission to the LLM program, the Pace joint degree candidate will be given credit for up to twelve credits of environmental law courses successfully completed while in the JD program. A student would then be able to obtain the LLM in only one year of part-time study, or as little as one semester of full-time study.

Non-Pace Law students desiring to participate in the joint degree program may apply to enter Pace for their third year (or final year for evening students) beginning in the fall term. These students will be considered visitors and non-matriculated at Pace Law School for their third or final year and will receive their JD from their home institutions. These students will be expected to complete approximately twelve credits of environmental law courses while at Pace Law School, and officially apply to the LLM program in their sixth semester as full-time JD students (in their eighth for evening students) by submitting an abbreviated application.   

On completion of the JD, non-matriculated students will be given credit for up to twelve credits of real estate courses taken in the Pace JD program toward the LLM. A student would then be able to obtain the LLM in only one year of part-time study or one semester of full-time study.
