Environmental Law Preference Rankings V2.1

Postby gatorlion » Mon Aug 03, 2009 10:41 pm

For those of you who are interested in environmental law but are not comfortable relying on the entirely reputation-based rankings offered by USNWR, I have developed a new ranking system called the Environmental Law Preference Rankings (ELPR) which offers a new kind of ranking based on a law school's resources to study and practice environmental law, job prospects upon graduation, and the degree to which the school is perceived as possessing a specialty in the area of environmental law. I hope future environmental lawyers will find this tool useful when selecting a law school.

9/3/2009 Update
- Includes all USNWR ranked environmental law programs, bringing the total list of schools ranked to 39 (V2.0.1 had 33)

Thanks!

Thanks Gatorlion, this is an great article that will be very valuable to those interested in Environmental Law but wanting to balance the school's emphasis upon environmental law with its overall excellence. Thanks for making TLS a better place. Cheers,

Tulane is really that high for environmental law?

Would be much appreciated. Thanks!


Unfortunately, I do not feel I will have the time to devote to updating the ELPR. I am entering the 4th year of my PhD program so I'm preparing for my exams, interning twice a week with CBS, serving as a TA for Contemporary Constitutional Rights, working on my dissertation prospectus, doing college application consulting a couple nights a week, and organizing a climate change law symposium with UCI law students, among other things. I hope to revise these rankings at some point, but I don't feel I can do it at this time.

EDIT: I would say that NW looks improved compared to last year.

Gatorlion, just saw this old thread and your response. Definitely understand about not having the time to update! Thanks again for creating the rankings in the first place though. They've been a great help to me in guiding my law school research. Just took the LSAT (for applying next cycle), so I'll know soon if my top school choices could be a reality. Good luck with all you're doing!

I can't agree more! This is a fantastic resource! Great job gatorlion!
