This programme is designed to equip students with an advanced, interdisciplinary knowledge of the legal issues and techniques related to environmental protection and the management of natural resources, with special emphasis on climate change.
The programme enables students to analyse and evaluate the historic and ongoing development of international, European and national law for environmental protection, the interrelations between these different levels of law-making, as well as the interactions between environmental law and other areas of law.
It will also allow students to choose option courses complementing their legal studies with an analysis of the scientific and socioeconomic aspects of environmental protection.
This programme is affiliated with the University’s Global Environment & Society Academy
