Course content

This course offers an insight into the international legal response to major global environmental challenges, from climate change to the destruction of vital habitat sites.

You will cover a wide range of relevant contemporary issues, and will develop a solid grounding in international environmental law as applied in a particular context.

Modern techniques of environmental regulation are also addressed, including funding mechanisms for international environmental treaties, such as the biodiversity and ozone layer conventions, and procedural requirements for environmental impact assessment of certain activities under international law.

The School of Law has a high level of expertise in environmental law and related issues and you will be taught by scholars actively researching in the field.
