Houston is the energy capital of the world.  The development and use of energy and natural resources are affected by numerous environmental laws and policies.  The UH Law Center has built an international reputation as a center for research and teaching in energy, natural resources, and environmental law.  The program provides a forum for the most important issues of the day, such as climate change, air pollution, clean coal, and renewable energy. 

The curriculum ranks among the best in the nation and trains lawyers to handle the complex legal and policy issues that surround three areas: 

(1) Energy production, transportation, and use;

(2) Pollution prevention; and

(3) Natural resources exploitation.

Admission requires a law degree earned in the United States at an accredited law school or, if not a US law school, a university that is recognized by the Ministry of Education in that country.
