Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources Certificate Curriculum
The EENR Certificate Program is open to all School of Law students who have completed the first-year curriculum and are in good academic standing. Law students currently enrolled and in good standing in other ABA-accredited law schools may complete the program as a full-time visiting second- or third-year student at the School of Law.
The program requires students to successfully complete a total of seventeen (17) credits of law courses, which includes the required courses, elective (primary) courses, and a two-credit approved special project. Successful completion of the J.D. program is also required for UND Law students.
The certificate will be awarded to School of Law students simultaneously with the J.D. degree and will be reflected on the student’s law school transcript. For full-time visiting students at the School of Law, the certificate program requires successful completion of the required seventeen (17) credits, either at the School of Law during the visiting year or at the student’s home school prior to the visiting year. For any courses completed at the student’s home school, each course must be approved by the School of Law as fulfilling the requirements of the certificate program before the course may be counted toward the required credits and coursework for the certificate program. The certificate will be awarded at the end of the visiting year and will be reflected on the School of Law transcript for the visiting year.
The program will be administered by a Director appointed by the Dean. The Director will serve as an academic advisor for students enrolled in the certificate program and will have responsibility for approving students’ special projects and for approving any prior coursework by full-time visiting students at the School of Law.
