Program Description

LLM Climate Change Law and Policy

University of Strathclyde: Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

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.

Expert teaching staff

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.

Venues

The first residential session will take place at the New Lanark Mill Hotel in New Lanark, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located not far from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The second residential session will take place in Glasgow in the University's Technology and Innovation Centre. LLM candidates will be hosted in a nearby hotel, within walking distance of the Centre.

We believe that these venues will provide the perfect mix. A secluded environment during the first residential session will enable the group on the programme to get to know each oher. During the second session, participants will have the chance to experience the University and get to know the city.

Our students

The current cohort is made up of professionals from across the globe currently working in roles such as an administrative law judge, research associates and senior partner in law firms.

Entry requirements

Normally an upper second-class Honours degree (or equivalent) in any discipline related to Climate Change Law & 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).

Pre-Masters preparation course

The Pre-Masters Programme is a preparation course for international students (non EU/UK) who do not meet the entry requirements for a Masters degree at the University of Strathclyde. The Pre-Masters programme provides progression to a number of degree options.
