  • Florida’s sensitive, varied and beautiful natural environment makes the University of Florida a natural choice for students who want to focus on the national and global issues of land use and environmental law. Florida provides a perfect setting to study first-hand the efforts to reconcile growth and conservation.

    The Environmental and Land Use Law Program educates future lawyers through an innovative approach that combines the study of land use law with environmental law. Many environmental problems result from inappropriate uses of land. Air and water pollution, toxic and hazardous waste, endangered species protection and balancing public health and environmental values against the protection of private property interests are challenges that face every community.
