    Completed applications, including all supporting documents, must be received by February 15 for summer admission (limited course offerings available), June 15 for fall semester admission, or October 15 for spring semester admission. Applications will be reviewed upon submission and admission decisions will be made on a rolling basis.

    Current law students are advised to wait until they have completed five semesters of law school before applying to the LL.M. program.

    Applications received after the deadline may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, if space permits. If you are applying after the deadline, please contact llmenviro@law.ufl.edu.


    Applicants for the LL.M program must have a J.D. from a law school that is a member of the Association of American Law Schools or from a law school that is accredited by the American Bar Association. Applicants will be evaluated based on consideration of the following factors: academic performance; demonstrated interest in environmental, natural resources or land use law; scholarly capacity; law practice experience and legal skills; and other environmental, natural resources or land use experience. An applicant’s strength with one or more of these factors may lessen the importance of the other factors for that applicant.

    International Students: At this time, the LL.M. program is not open to international applicants. However, please see our LL.M. in Comparative Law Program, through which you may be able to take environmental law courses as electives.

    How to Apply

    Enrollment is limited to applicants who have attained a Juris Doctor or equivalent degree from a law school that is a member of the Association of American Law Schools or from a law school that is accredited by the American Bar Association. However, graduates of law schools provisionally accredited by the American Bar Association may be considered for admission on the basis of outstanding credentials.
