University of Edinburgh

Global Environment and Climate Change Law

This programme is designed to equip students with an advanced, interdisciplinary-disciplinary knowledge of the legal issues and techniques related to environmental protection and the management of natural resources, with special emphasis on climate change. The course enables students to analyse and evaluate the historic and ongoing development of international, European and national law for environmental protection, the inter-relations between these different levels of law-making, as well as the interactions between environmental law and other areas of law. The programme allows students to choose optional courses complementing their legal studies with an analysis of the scientific and socio-economic aspects of environmental protection.
