This Master’s programme on Law and Sustainability in Europe discusses how the EU and its Member States respond to challenges related to the sustainability transition. It approaches the role of Europe and its legal regimes, especially EU law, in an international setting. But it also teaches students how national law can play an essential role in implementing European law on sustainability. This unique dual approach is the core feature of this new Master’s programme.

Do you want to gain knowledge about legal principles and instruments to create truly sustainable economies and societies at the European and national levels? Are you interested in how liability law is used in climate litigation and which new legal concepts are being discussed to stop biodiversity loss? Do you want to become a legal expert who contributes to saving the planet and improving the quality of life for current and future generations? If so, our one-year Master’s in Law and Sustainability in Europe sounds right for you!
