Course content

This course is a flexible, rigorous, integrated and practical course covering national and international environmental law regimes alongside associated regimes, such as energy law. It incorporates up-to-date research and contemporary developments within the field.

Kingston University's LLM courses allow you to specialise and tailor your degree to a topic of your choice, while also giving you the flexibility to take modules on other subjects, making it flexible and easy to adapt to your interests and career goals.

You will complete work worth 180 credits by studying four 30-credit modules and one 60-credit dissertation module.

In addition to the Law School's team of highly skilled academics, courses are taught by experienced practitioners, and many of our lecturing staff combine teaching with legal practice. This helps to ensure that the courses are constantly refreshed with the latest industry thinking and practice, and provides you with the opportunity to mix with people who can provide hands-on experience and insight into their area of legal work.

Kingston Law School has strong links with The Law Society, the professional body that represents practising solicitors in England and Wales.


What will you study

You take four modules (at least two of which must be selected from the core modules list) and take the Legal Research and Dissertation module on any topic of your choice related to environmental law and sustainability.
