About the Environmental Law and Sustainability Research Group

Supporting environmental research and the wider University

The main goals of the Group are to advance research and teaching and explore the role of law in meeting contemporary environmental and sustainability challenges.

The Group supports its members in the development and implementation of their research and other scholarly activity and encourages collaboration within the Group and in the wider academy of the University and beyond (for example, engaging with other external institutions and organisations interested in our areas of research).

We understand that collaboration and community involvement are vital tools in tackling the environmental and legal challenges faced by the society. Key to this is addressing issues through conferences, guest speakers and workshops.

Engaging with international bodies in this field is also important to our research. Our members are sharing their academic knowledge and real-world expertise to help both our work, and that of the organisations we consult with.

Group members also support various courses in the field from undergraduate to postgraduate level, notably:

  • Environmental Law (LLB Year 2 option)
  • Globalisation, Trade and Natural Resources (LLB Year 3 option)
  • International Environmental Law (LLM Module)
  • Natural Resources Law (LLM Module)
  • European Environmental Policy and Law (LLM Module)

Other environment and sustainability related modules include:

  • Globalisation and the Law (LLM Module)
  • International Human Rights Law (LLM Module)
  • WTO law (LLM Module)

The Group also welcomes participation from students. For example, it supports student-led conferences and other activities.
