Program Overview

Understanding the development and functioning of environmental law across different levels of environmental governance is an important issue of our time. This requires moving beyond the traditional approach to teaching international, regional, EU and national environmental law in isolation from one other.

There's also a growing need to understand the relevance for environmental governance of the legal practices of indigenous peoples and local communities, business entities, local administrations, and transnational environmental practitioners.

Studying this course, you'll be equipped with a wide range of expertise in environmental law, in areas such as:

  • Biodiversity
  • Land
  • Food and agriculture
  • Climate change and energy
  • Corporate accountability
  • Environmental justice
  • Water and oceans
  • Human rights
  • Sustainable development

You'll focus on the global dynamics of environmental law. In particular, you'll look at the mutual influences and interactions among different regulatory levels.

The programme draws both on cutting-edge academic research on global environmental law and on first-hand professional experience in environmental law and governance at different levels.
