The University of Nottingham is widely recognised as a centre of excellence in European law. The LLM in European Law attracts students from all over the world with an interest in the governance of Europe and the role of its institutions in the global legal order. We offer a broad perspective that encompasses both the law of the supranational European Union and the intergovernmental Council of Europe, including the European Convention on Human Rights.

The School provides a welcoming environment – educational, social and cultural – for the study of European law. Students enjoy participating in seminars led by leading scholars drawn from the School and its specialist centres, including the Human Rights Law Centre, the Centre for Environmental Law and the Public Procurement Research Group. We have a thriving European Law Society that organises seminars and events open to all. Recent visitors include Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston of the European Court of Justice and Professor Joseph Weiler of New York University.

The Programme Director of the LLM is Professor Jeffrey Kenner, who is Chair of European Law and convenor of a popular module on International Relations Law of the EU. Professor Niamh Moloney, the Chair of Capital Markets Law, has introduced a new module on EU Financial Services Law. We also have recruited new colleagues with expertise in European Law, including Dr Emilie Cloatre, Dr Aris Georgopoulos, Dr Annamaria La Chimia and Dr Ping Wang. The arrival of new colleagues enables us to plan to introduce more options in the future. It also means that we will be able to expand our highly regarded PhD and MPhil programmes.

European Law is an area of established expertise and activity at Nottingham. It has a bright and exciting future of which we warmly hope you will be a part.

Since its introduction in 1987, our LLM programme has continued to grow in popularity and prestige.

The International Community increasingly faces the task of addressing a plethora of environmental challenges. The LLM Environmental law provides an insight into the international legal response to these various challenges which include global warming, ozone layer depletion, the over-exploitation by mankind of wildlife species and the destruction of vital habitat sites.

Many environmental problems require an international response. This course aims to provide the student with an insight into international environmental law with a focus on the general themes and principles in this area, the law relating to the protection of biodiversity, and that which endeavours to prevent or at least minimise the impact of transfrontier pollution.

The modules taught on this course cover a wide range of issues of contemporary relevance. The underlying purpose is to provide a solid grounding in the basic principles of European Community and international environmental law as applied in a particular context.

How has international environmental law evolved historically? Who are the main actors in the field? What key principles underpin regulation? What do we mean by the pursuit of “sustainable development”? How is the law in this area enforced? Treaty regimes explored include those relating to acid deposition, climate change, ozone layer depletion, nuclear contamination and freshwater pollution. In addition, an insight will be given to the various treaty regimes that seek to address the continuing pressures on the world’s biodiversity. For example, how is commercial whaling now regulated? What system is in place to regulate trade in endangered species? What of the protection of wetlands, Antarctica, world heritage and of migratory species?

Modern techniques of environmental regulation are also addressed, such as the funding mechanisms for international environmental treaties (e.g. Biodiversity Convention, Ozone Layer Convention) and the procedural requirement for environmental impact assessment of certain activities under international and European Community law.

This interdisciplinary programme is designed to provide an opportunity to explore the interplay between scientific knowledge and law. You may take courses that address the international legal response to the growing number of pressures on the global environment, and complement these by studying a variety of courses designed to give an introduction to physical and/or biological sciences.

Climate change, acid rain, biodiversity conservation, species extinction, contaminated land - these are but a few of the environmental issues that constitute headline news today. Modules offered by the School of Law are designed to give a wider understanding of EC and international law perspectives on environmental problems that frequently can only be addressed through regional or international regulation. How has international environmental law evolved historically? Who are the main actors in the field? What key principles underpin regulation? What do we mean by the pursuit of “sustainable development”? How is the law in this area enforced?

Treaty regimes explored include those relating to acid deposition, climate change, ozone layer depletion, nuclear contamination and freshwater pollution. In addition, an insight will be given to the various treaty regimes that seek to address the continuing pressures on the world’s biodiversity. For example, how is commercial whaling now regulated? What system is in place to regulate trade in endangered species? What of the protection of wetlands, Antarctica, world heritage and of migratory species?

The scientific element of the programme is designed to provide a background in biological and/or physical sciences, and also an understanding of relevant mathematical and computer science to facilitate a quantitative understanding of environmental issues.

Addressing these issues to ensure a clean and healthy environment for the enjoyment of future generations is one of the greatest challenges for environmental science and law.

The relationship between law and development has been a central concern of policy makers, lawyers and scholars throughout the last century. The difficulties that many developing states are facing in terms of economic growth, but also in relation to the implementation of human rights, fighting poverty levels, improving health or education standards, have become central concerns both at the international level and for policy-makers within developing states. The impact of legal standards and international rules in assisting developing states achieve their developmental aims has generated increasing interest from legal scholars and practitioners alike.

The LLM International Law and Development provides an opportunity for any student interested in the issues faced by developing states in the international order to obtain in depth knowledge of the field. The course offers a series of specialist modules that cover the most critical issues in the area. A specialised module on Law, Development and the International Community forms the basis of some of the key questions that need to be asked in relation to the position of developing states, such as human rights, environmental law, or international commercial law

The LLM in Public International law is designed for those candidates who seek the qualification of a general public international lawyer, but with a range of specialist interests (as in environmental protection, or world trade or humanitarian warfare or human rights).

This degree School of Law not only allows candidates to develop an excellent grounding in the techniques of argument and interpretation of international law with special reference to its sources (such as treaties and custom) but also to acquire some expertise in how these elements are put to the test in very different contexts (compare for example, the notion of the international law of development, which enjoys a more recent history of legal intervention, with the international regulation of the sue of force, whose history is often traced back to the 1907 Hague Convention Respecting the Limitation of the Employment of Force for the Recovery of Contract Debts). We seek, therefore, to produce a well-rounded, or general, international lawyer who is sufficiently equipped in the basic methodologies of the discipline but who, at the same time, has a general awareness of the various sub-realms of public international law applies (and has been applied) therein.

Since its introduction in 1987, our LLM programme has continued to grow in popularity and prestige. Offering a wide and diverse range of over 50 options, the programme now attracts some 150 to 180 candidates each year, from more than 50 countries, confirming its status as one of the leading and most exciting LLM programmes available

The turn of the new century has witnessed a continuing shift in the nature of conflict and security, with attention turning to issues such as threats and attacks by non-state actors, the responses of states to threats from terrorism and the spread of weapons of mass destruction and the idea of post-conflict rebuilding. The conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq show that it is necessary to study these conflicts from the perspectives of both law and politics to gain a complete picture of the issues and to be able to analyse the arguments and outcomes.

This innovative interdisciplinary programme will allow students to explore key legal and political issues in contemporary security as they relate to warfare, conflict and terrorism, to place conflict and security issues and events within a legal and political context and to understand the relationship between law and politics in international relations. It will also facilitate the analysis of the justifications, causes and consequences of war, conflict and terrorism, including the legal and political responses available to deal with international security threats.

In 1998, Nottingham became the first Law School in the UK to offer a postgraduate module in international criminal justice. Since then, the LLM in International Criminal Justice and Armed Conflict has been further enriched with a list of complementary modules and has grown from strength to strength attracting students from all over the world.

This specialisation provides a holistic overview of the law governing the use of force by States, the law applicable to the conduct of hostilities, the measures adopted to combat terrorism, as well as the legal and philosophical responses to international criminality through the examination of the emerging system of international criminal justice. Current affairs issues and modern challenges to the law and politics surrounding war and justice are extensively discussed as part of the above modules.

Taught by internationally recognised experts in the field, supported by an impressive list of visiting speakers, LLM students will be immersed in this fascinating and fast-moving area of the law. The LLM at Nottingham allows students to acquire the requisite expertise in order to understand the intimate details of the workings of the law applicable prior to, during and following an armed conflict. Students will successfully apply this knowledge to their professional careers in the future.

Through an exclusive co-operation agreement held between the Nottingham Human Rights Law Centre and the International Criminal Court, selected students undertaking the LLM in International Criminal Justice and Armed Conflict will be given the opportunity to work on a project which forms part of the Court’s Legal Tools, further enhancing their exposure to application of the law in practice. Past graduates of this specialisation have secured internships with international organisations, courts and tribunals as well as NGO’s specialising in the field with many of them subsequently undertaking employment in their chosen area of expertise.

As well as providing substantive information about criminal law and its enforcement, the LLM Criminal Justice encourages students to engage with the methodological foundations of research and scholarship, and to appreciate their implications for penal policymaking and practice.

The emphasis is on understanding issues, problems, institutions, processes and cultures of penal law and policy, against a backdrop of ever-increasing globalisation in criminality and law enforcement across national boundaries.

Criminal Justice teaching and scholarship in the school is founded on the reputation and achievements of Sir John Smith, one of the greatest academic lawyers of the 20th century. Generations of lawyers across the common law world were first introduced to the subject by Smith and Hogan's Criminal Law.
