  • Brazil

  • China

  • Ghana

  • Japan

  • Peru

  • Russia

  • Saudi Arabia

  • United States
Continuing students from Mexico and many of the countries listed mean that this year's class will include students from 10 different countries.

In terms of the United States, the program will include in-coming students from California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Don Smith said, "The Denver Law Environmental and Natural Resources Graduate Program has a long-standing history of attracting the best students from all around the U.S. as well as from all over the world. We are delighted to say that our graduates are involved in important projects all over the globe and that the time they spent at Denver Law has helped prepare them for their challenging positions."

Lucy Daberkow said, "Recruiting students from around the world is one of the program's top priorities. It is gratifying to watch how all of our students -- from the U.S. and abroad -- come together and learn from each other. Today's world requires the ability to work in a global setting. Our aim is to help introduce our students to that setting."
