The growing pressure on natural resources has prompted a search for new and renewable energy forms. Alongside other significant impacts upon the environment, energy production, distribution and use have become a priority area for governments, businesses and non-governmental organisations across the world. With a growing demand for employees with specialised global legal knowledge in energy and environmental law, we’ve designed this course specifically to meet that need.
On this International Energy and Environmental Law Masters course from University of Stirling , you’ll explore the intersections between energy, environment and regulation. Expert staff have come together to provide graduates with an in-depth understanding of international energy and environmental law, as well as of key areas of energy management, environmental policy and economics.
You’ll be taught by expert staff in law, politics, economics and environmental science. They’ll give you clear insight into the relevant legal, political and economic issues related to energy and environmental law at the national, regional and, particularly, the international level.
Climate change is increasingly regarded as the challenge of our generation – which is why international energy and environmental law are amongst the most topical societal issues at the moment. Conscious of these developments, law firms are opening their own specialised energy and environmental law divisions. As a result, there’s a great demand for employees who have a specialised legal knowledge in energy and environmental law.
Our graduates are also well-placed to pursue careers in:
- Law firms
- Government and regulatory authorities
- International bodies
- Non-governmental organisations and charities
- Pressure groups, including those from the energy and environmental sectors
