Law students accepted into the University of Wyoming are invited to add a joint master of arts in environment and natural resources to their degree program. JD/MA law and ENR students collaborate across campus to practice critical thinking and collaborative problem solving for natural resource challenges. You'll take on a Plan B thesis project to study and write about an environment and natural resources challenge of your choice. You'll also learn with Haub School graduate students who bring expertise from a range of UW departments to the classroom in the ENR capstone course.
A joint JD/MA in law and environment and natural resources from the Haub School emphasizes development of essential skills:
