Pace University School of Law

The Doctor of Juridical Science (SJD) in Environmental Law at Pace prepares legal scholars to teach environmental law in the United States and abroad. Admission is highly competitive and requires completion of an LLM in Environmental Law with distinction either at Pace or in a comparable program at another law school.

We thoroughly review a candidate’s SJD application and require one or more interviews with members of the environmental law faculty. Since students work closely with a faculty advisor, we admit only one or two applicants annually.

Application Deadline There is no official application deadline for LLM or SJD applicants.
Tuition Fee $22,000.00
Credits 12

Location 78 N Broadway, White Plains, NY 10603, United States
Completion Requirement SJD candidates who have not yet received an LLM in environmental law will be required to complete an equivalent number of academic credits in environmental law at Pace prior to starting the thesis.
Language Requirement f your native language is not English, you must submit evidence of English language proficiency. The Graduate Admissions Committee strongly prefers TOEFL scores of at least 90 or IELTS scores of at least 6.5. Candidates with lower scores will be considered by the Committee, although they may be required to complete a course of instruction at the Pace University English Language Institute before enrollment in the LLM or SJD.
Candidates whose native language is not English, but who have completed university courses in which English was the language of instruction, may apply for a waiver of the English proficiency requirement.
