The Environmental Law and Management LLM allows you to study from home whether in the UK or overseas and keep in contact with tutors by email, telephone, fax and/or post. You can also maintain contact with one another, both during and after your studies, offering invaluable peer support and networking opportunities.
There are two start dates for the Environmental Law and Management LLM by distance learning in each academic year - 1 April and 1 October. Although you are allowed up to a maximum of five years to complete the course, it is possible to complete six modules per academic year. However, the flexible nature of the programmes means that you can work at your own pace through the modules. Each of the twelve modules is worth 10 credits and the dissertation is worth 60 credits. To gain the LLM qualification you will be required to complete 180 credits worth of study 120 from taught modules and 60 from the dissertation. It will be possible to complete 60 credits (six modules) to gain a certificate recognising your achievement. On completion of all the modules but in the absence of the dissertation, you will be eligible for a diploma in law. You can also choose to study individual modules to enhance your knowledge in a particular area. All the modules are assessed by an assignment of up to 5000 words.
The dissertation provides you with an excellent opportunity to study an aspect of the law in your chosen area of study which is of particular interest to you. Students often, but not exclusively, select project topics which have a direct bearing on their professional lives. The standard of the work produced is very high indeed and several of our students have graduated with distinction.
Attendance at the biennial residential weekends is highly recommended. The programme of lectures, seminars and workshops at the study schools both stimulates and encourages, as well as providing an invaluable opportunity for debate and discussion with staff, visiting lecturers and fellow students.

Teaching/assessment You are guided through each of the LLMs by a module handbook containing notes, reading lists and self-assessment questions. All the documents on the reading lists are provided either electronically through the Universitys electronic resources, by direct links to the worldwide web, as digitised documents on Blackboard (the Universitys on-line learning/teaching facility) or, exceptionally, as hard copy. Core text books are issued on loan with the module handbook and returned with the module assignment. Staff-student interchange is facilitated by coursework materials, telephone contact, email and written responses to coursework submissions.
The weekend residential schools provide the opportunity to meet with tutors, guest lecturers and fellow students and to reinforce your understanding of the subjects during lectures, discussion sessions and tutorials.
The programme has been designed to be open to graduates of all disciplines who have a good honours degree, including those from a science background and those who have no experience of law. Those who can demonstrate suitable professional qualifications or skills are welcome to apply. The wide range of backgrounds that are attracted to the LLM courses contribute to the quality of the discussion - various experiences, viewpoints and backgrounds enhance the level of debate between students.
