Description

Advertisement

Recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the programme provides the training, skills and aptitudes necessary for students intending to pursue PhD-level research in the social sciences and humanities, and in particular environmental law and policy. It is portable in that it can be taken by any student intending to go on to PhD study at Newcastle or elsewhere and provides the initial research training element of any ESRC 1+3 programme (Masters degree + PhD).

Through the programme, you will develop

critical understanding of key principles and doctrines in a range of legal subjects related to environmental regulation and sustainable development

appreciation of the key institutions relevant to those legal subjects

critical understanding of relevant theoretical perspectives on the legal and policy issues raised by the subjects studied

skills in analysis, synthesis, evaluation and judgement across arguments from diverse sources

knowledge and practice of doctrinal, quantitative and qualitative research techniques, especially those pertaining to current research in environmental law and policy

More information is available about the various areas where we offer research supervision.
