Climate Change Law and Policy

The Strathclyde LLM in Climate Change Law & Policy will provide you with a timely qualification and highly specialised knowledge in an ever-growing field of law and policy.
The course is taught through a combination of two residential sessions at New Lanark Mill Hotel and at the University campus in Glasgow city centre. The flexibility of the course allows you to undertake this exciting programme within one to three years while continuing with your current professional role. It's a useful qualification for anyone working in areas such as government, international organisations, law firms and consultancies, the banking and insurance sector, electric utilities, and research, educational and advocacy organisations. It also provides an excellent opportunity for recent graduates in law and other relevant disciplines to start out your career in an exciting growth area. The LLM is delivered by leading experts in the field of climate change law and policy coming from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds. They'll provide you with practical insights and inside knowledge.

Entry requirements

Normally an upper second-class Honours degree (or equivalent) in any discipline related to climate change Law and policy, although previous study with some law content would be useful. Other qualifications may be recognised, especially where the applicant's work experience is relevant to the course. For the Strathclyde LLM in Climate Change Law and Policy we're in a position to waiver the official University post-graduate English language proficiency requirements. If you do not have a IELTS certificate, we will gauge your level of English on an ad-hoc basis in order to determine whether your level of English is sufficient. Since participating on the Strathclyde LLM in Climate Change Law and Policy does not require students to stay in the UK permanently, participants will be required to gain a visitor's Visa, and not a student Visa (Tier 4).
