Law and Environmental Science

The programme enables students to take courses that address the international legal response to the growing number of pressures on the global environment, and complement these by studying a variety of courses designed to give an introduction to physical and/or biological sciences. Introductory modules in science or law are compulsory for students without a science or law background to maximise access to the range of courses on offer. The joint syndicate exercise and individual research project are compulsory for all students. Beyond these modules students are free to choose additional modules from the range of compatible law and science modules available, subject only to the requirement that a minimum number of law and science modules are selected.
