Environmental and Land Use Law

Environmental law is a body of state, federal, and international statutes and court decisions intended to protect the environment from pollution, misuse, overuse, and other damage.  Environmental laws both regulate activities and give an individual or group the right to bring legal actions to enforce its protections or remedy environmental harms.  Federal, state, and local governments regulate growth and development through statutory law which constitutes land use law.

In addition to the courses below, NSU Law offers a dual degree program with Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic that leads to a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Protection of the Environment.
