“Having the LLM in Environmental Law has helped me out in my career a great deal. Initially, it was a key element to my getting a job at WWF. They wanted policy people who could negotiate at UN or other global conventions who could understand both the science and the law.” (E. Salter Green, CHEM Trust)

Who is the course for?
The course is equally suited to both lawyers and non-lawyers from a wide range of industries. Previous students have included environmental managers and consultants, technical and quality control professionals, engineers, planning officers and senior management in consulting, governmental, environmental, engineering and design, waste management, manufacturing and utility companies.

For in-house counsel and private practice lawyers the course offers the additional benefit of fulfilling up to 100 per cent of annual CPD requirements.

Do I need to have a law degree?
No. The standard entry requirements for the course are a UK university undergraduate degree, a relevant professional qualification or an equivalent international qualification which indicates an ability to study at the postgraduate level. Whilst some background knowledge of law is useful, a degree in law is not essential.

Why study by distance learning?
Increasingly we all face more pressures at work and finding the time to attend courses can be difficult with well-meant plans often put aside indefinitely. Distance learning gives the opportunity to study for a recognised UK university qualification while remaining in full-time employment. Students set the pace at which they learn, deciding when, where and how long to study for.

Why study with DMU?
The Department of Law is one of the two constituent Departments of Leicester De Montfort Law School. The Department enjoys a quality rating nationally for its high standards of achievement in legal education across its teaching, research, publishing and related activities. It operates full and part time Honours Law Degree courses and contributes to a wide range of inter-disciplinary degree programmes.

The Department is host to a lively academic community, which is justly proud of its reputation. The team of subject specialists involved with the Masters Programme includes authors of some of the leading texts in Environmental Law.
