Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance Teaching

We offer innovative, research-led and practice-oriented teaching to equip our students to:

  • assess new legal developments at different levels of governance in 12  specialised areas such as biodiversity, climate change, forests, oceans and fisheries, land, food, and water;
  • analyse cross-cutting themes across different environmental regimes including justice, human rights, and corporate accountability;
  • enhance their global employability by thinking critically and creatively about the role of law in environmental governance.

Based on our first-hand understanding of the role of law for multi-level environmental governance, we build students' skills and knowledge in:

  • international organisations
  • national government bodies, involved in international, EU and/or transnational environmental law matters
  • think tanks and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that operate at the international, regional, national and local level
  • other research institutions

We provide opportunities to our undergraduate, Masters and PhD students to:

  • get involved in our research, knowledge exchange and consultancy work to receive on-the-job training, as well as strengthen their CVs and build professional networks
  • receive proactive support in pursuing international internships (which have become an almost necessary step for an international career) and employment opportunities
  • keep in touch after they have left Strathclyde, with a view to receiving further support in career development and exploring opportunities for future collaboration
