Introduction

The main focus of this course is how the growing pressure on natural resources has prompted a re-evaluation of traditional approaches to addressing the challenges and seeking opportunities, including mitigating climate change, halting and restoring biodiversity and habitat loss, sustainable development and replacing conventional forms of energy (oil, gas, coal), as well as a search for new and renewable ones via energy transition.

The course provides both breadth and depth of analysis into these issues through an integrated approach to environmental law that weaves in concepts and theories about sustainability, justice and human rights. While specialist, the LLM Environmental Law and Climate Justice course is accessible to those without a background in either energy or environmental issues or law and policy. It is therefore aimed at both law graduates and also those with experience in related disciplines in social and environmental sciences, as well as in the arts and humanities. This is enhanced by the cross-faculty provision of modules comprising the LLM course.
