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.
