The UNM Law School provides a real-world application and understanding of natural resources and environmental law. Courses are taught annually in water and environmental law, and seminars and lectures offer timely discussion of special topics, such as biodiversity and conservation easements. Emphasis is on the natural resources of the Southwest and helping students develop a sophisticated understanding of the political, legal, cultural, and physical factors that affect resources. Other classes are offered on an occasional basis, and may, with permission of the chair of the natural resources committee, count toward the requirements for the certificate.
Students may choose from a number of courses listed below.
A = offered every semester
B = offered one semester every year
C = offered every other year
D = offered when student interest and faculty availability allow
