Course summary


The devastation of the environment and ecosystems is of increasing concern across the world. In addition to the impact of climate change and reduced biodiversity, both legal and illegal economic activity is a challenge to legal frameworks and agencies at national and international levels of governance.

This master's degree has been designed to tackle these issues and equip students with high-level knowledge and skills to enable them to develop professional careers in the environmental sector.

Why study MA Environmental Law and Justice at Middlesex University?

Successful completion of the course will ensure you have the required practical skills and knowledge applicable to careers in environmental policy and enforcement, with an emphasis on employability and engagement with contemporary environmental debates.

Our academic staff, including criminologist Dr Angus Nurse, who has both research and professional experience in the environmental crime area, European policy specialist Dr Meri Juntti, renowned gender and development expert Dr Sarah Bradshaw specialist in human rights law and Head of the School of Law, is an expert in her respective fields who uses her impressive research portfolio to inform her teaching.

In the course of their work with NGOs such as the United Kingdom Environmental Law Association, the League Against Cruel Sports, Humane Society International and WWF (all of whom have attended environmental policy events hosted at Middlesex), we have developed a comprehensive understanding of the key skills and knowledge needed for graduates wishing to develop or maintain careers in environmental justice and law enforcement.

You will also have a number of opportunities to gain practical work experience through three different work placement modules offered as options through the programme. One of these enables you to apply to undertake an Erasmus-funded internship with an international organisation in an appropriate field based in another European country.


How can the MA Environmental Law and Justice support your career?

This programme is developed to provide you with the in-depth knowledge and practical skills to support your continual professional development and to further your employment and career prospects in the environmental policy and enforcement field.

In particular, the course is suitable for those wishing to gain employment or achieve career progression within environmental NGOs, government environment agencies, local authority environment departments and environmental advocacy and policy organisations. The skills gained in the programme are suitable to career pathways in environmental investigations, environmental policy, environmental advocacy and environmental monitoring and environmental protection research.

It is also suited to students wishing to progress from undergraduate study in green criminology and environmental justice to postgraduate study and academic careers in green scholarship and academic advocacy.

The Programme Leader and other contributors to the programme in the department will work alongside the employability office to facilitate your future career decisions. As well as access to the University's Employability Service you will be provided career guidance including on how to enter and pass recruitment processes for national and international organisations.

Staff members teaching on the programme include world-renowned scholars who combine instruction in core topics with the fruits of their current research. Students will benefit from their networks of contacts, notably as regards internship opportunities in national and international organisations such as the United Nations.
