Course content

Law modules are designed to give a wider understanding of international law perspectives on environmental problems that frequently can only be addressed through regional or international regulation.

Treaty regimes explored include those relating to acid deposition, climate change, ozone layer depletion, nuclear contamination and freshwater pollution. In addition, detailed attention will be given to the various treaty regimes that seek to address the continuing pressures on the world's biodiversity.

The scientific element of the programme is designed to provide a background in biological and/or physical sciences, and also an understanding of relevant mathematical and computer science to aid a quantitative understanding of environmental issues.
