In as little as six years, you will have the credentials to become an authority with a wealth of scientific knowledge that can be applied to specific areas of the law. While focusing on concentrations including general biology, environmental biology, molecular and cellular biology and pre-physical therapy, you’ll work closely with professors in a real-world laboratory setting to focus on a capstone research project during your senior year.
You may also have the opportunity to apply your scientific expertise to the University’s Environmental Law program, which is internationally recognized. Environmental Litigation Clinic allows students to participate in litigation relating to the environment, such as the Hudson River System whose waters are protected by Riverkeeper Inc., a public interest group.
